Community Bank Adventure Play Space, Hadfield Park, Queen Street, Wallan




This wonderful play space has been designed for children of a wide range of ages and abilities and is centred around a five-story tower and a water splash park.

The tower has a dual wave slides from the lowest level, a straight tunnel slide from the mid-point and a very twisty slide from the very top of the tower. There are a few routes up to the very top of the tower of varying degrees of difficulty but anyone who can climb steps will be able to reach the top, although you might get nose bleeds from the altitude. The tower is topped by metal hats which look like they previously belonged to Merlin the Magician.

At the base of the tower is a family size see-saw, big red tractor, spinning cup with hand-wheel and a sandpit which is under a roof. The sandpit has a table for sand play and a cubby house. Hidden away as part of the tower is a clanger to hit against pipes (the distinctive sound rings across the playground almost continuously), shop front, disks on a vertical pole and abacus.

Around the outside of the playground area are flying foxes (one with a harness seat and one with a disk seat), two birds nest swings of different sizes and four standard swings.

The water splash park is located on the side of the playground area. It includes a water play table with pumps, troughs and water channels, a three ring water tunnel with squirting water jets, a tipping bucket, areas with water jets and a "creek" bed area with water jets.

Grassy areas dotted with shady gum trees surround the play space and shelters with tables are scattered about. There is also a shaded BBQ, water taps and toilets (with change room).

The main playground is open to the public all year and the splash park operates from 10am to 8pm between December and March.

A shout-out to the Wallan & Kilmore Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank which made a significant contribution to the funding of the Play Space.

The water park is fantastic, but have to say i was a little disappointed with the playground as it is not really toddler friendly. I have a 3yr old and a 1yr old and I cant let them go up on the slides by themselves as there are no safety rails to stop them from falling. I did take them to the new Kilmore Park and that is far better for their age. I think the Wallan park is great from primary + kids.

I am proud to say that it was I, now ex Cr Kevin Mulroney, who pushed the idea of a water play facility with the park. After much opposition from some of my fellow councilors I was successful. I would like to thank all council officers who worked with me to make this beautiful facility happen.
