Bayview Park, Alamanda Boulevard, Point Cook



Update - Unfortunately the pirate ship was burnt down on 2/9/14.

Welcome to Fear Factor - a special slide which starts from a hill with a huge Pirate Ship and is frighteningly steep! The slide has had a controversial history because apparently it caused a few broken legs. Since that time it has been modified but care needs to be taken. The slide is restricted to older children and teenagers of height more than 1.28m and the area is also under video surveillance. Sitting at the top of the slide certainly causes some fear and trepidation because the slide is so steep and long. Even though it is a fast ride down, the actual ride is not too scary although there is a certain amount of flailing arms and legs at the bottom.

The pirate ship has a crows nest on the top deck as well as a fireman's pole and binoculars for taking in the great view over the newly built housing estate. On the lower deck inside the ship is an abacus and metal bars with a clapper for making raucous and deafening "music". There is also a tunnel, climbing wall, rope ladders and wide slide. There are a few unshaded seats at the top of the hill.

Located around the base of the hill are a large rope climbing frame, birds nest swing and covered sandpit with mechanical scoop.

Shelter with tables, BBQs and water tap. Also shaded and unshaded tables and seats - the tables even have a maze embedded into the top. Basketball court.

The playground is best suited to older kids and offers great adventure for them. This playground is not operated by the council.

This is an awesome park, its somewhere both children and adults can enjoy them selves, pity more councils don't build parks like this, I drive 2.5 hours just to see my girls enjoy themselves (and I get to play also!!!)

Ship at this playground was burnt down last night. So sad for the local kids and kids who visit and play there.

Before this park was sign posted for "older kids" my daughter broke her leg on this. My older child broke his arm. This slide is very dangerous. We had our story in the paper and another 5 parents come forward with their children and broken bones also. No adequate safety RAS around the pirate ship so if you go over the edge it's going to be very damaging. This park is pathetic in my eyes .

A park with no toilet is not helpful. As soon as a child needs to go to the toilet, you have to get in the car and drive around trying to find one. Make sure you discover where the closest toilets are prior to attending this park.

We visited here yesterday for a family bbq. It was great and even the little kids loved the slide. (!!!) Only 2 complaints: for the unfit or otherwise busy parents, the ship on top is a long way up (hard to supervise for littlies) and there are no toilets. Otherwise, it has lovely big, shady trees, grassy areas and free bbqs. If the rain hadn't set in, we'd have sat back and stayed for a few more hours.

Played here when I stayed with my older cousin. I went down the slide six times and highly enjoyed it. As for my younger second-cousins, they had to go down with their parents. Funny times there, my cousin nearly got stuck (like Homer Simpson) while his fiancee had no troubles and even went down with someone else's child. I highly anticipate returning to this playground so that I may go on that slide many more times.
