Riverside Park, Fawkner St, Aberfeldie




Nice location next to the Maribyrnong River. The highlight is a beautifully crafted Pirate ship named the "Black Sapphire". The ship is moored to a jetty in a sea of sand with access via a wooden bridge or thick rope bridge. The ship has two medium height wave slides and a scrambling wall at the rear (or is that the stern?), Captains Quarters with table and benches (if you are lucky enough to be invited to the Captain's table), a tunnel under the ship and lovely touches such as a plank, three bells to ring, treasure map, canons sticking out the side of the ship, telescopes and lovely big steering wheel. A great place for imaginative play. There are unshaded seats and a grassy area next to the ship.

The rest of the playground has some old play structures. One area has a structure with wave slide, hanging chain ladder, chain bridge, fireman's pole, monkey bars and very long flying fox. Four person pommel bounce.

Next to this area is a paved area with shaded tables and seats, BBQs, wooden sculptures and a shelter with tables.

At the other end is a wooden structure with slide, walkway, ladders, abacus, steering wheel and shop front. There is another shelter with tables, water tap and toilets.

Near the river so need to be vigilant.
