Barwon Valley Fun Park, Barrabool Road, Belmont




A real old fashioned playground which lives up to its name and is heaps of fun. It is a bit rundown but that doesn’t really spoil the fun - just part of the experience. There are lots of opportunities for play acting here.

Each piece of equipment is separate from the others in a large grassy area. There is a large pink cubby house with steps, ladder, fireman's pole, telescope, walkway and steering wheel, standalone wave slide, wooden bridge, large diameter concrete pipe tunnels, wooden platform with ladder which looks like it is surplus stock from a Dr Who episode, large round sandpit with a small structure and two springers, structure with spiral slide, fireman's pole, steps and curved ladder, sandpit with two mechanical scoops, four person rocker, carousel, swings and basketball court.

Tables, BBQs shaded under trees, unshaded seats, toilets and water tap. Quite close to the river.

Very sad the carousel has gone. Yes, there were kids flying off in all directions on every spin but they were all having a BALL.

I have to say that the new park is just not the same. I am a teenager and my friends and I used to hang out there and go on the carousel all the time (when there were no little kids on) It was so much fun but it just isn't the same. I have so many amazing memories from the park. The park will never be forgotten before it was 're done' while my childhood has become 'un done'

Still a great place but yes it has been modernised and the wagon has gone as well. Our 1 and 3 yo's love it and there is always a range of kids playing there.

Sadly, the carousel is now gone - replaced by a very pretty, but totally speed-limited, pale shadow of its former self. Two adults together cannot push it past walking speed. So sad.
