To celebrate reaching 3200 likers on our Melbourne Playgrounds Facebook page, we have created a document in PDF format which has a summary of the best playgrounds in the South West region of Melbourne. It includes 29 playgrounds in Altona, Altona Meadows, Ardeer, Bacchus Marsh, Braybrook, Derrimut, Footscray, Footscray West, Hoppers Crossing, Maddingley, Point Cook, Sunshine, Sunshine West, Tarneit, Werribee, Werribee South, Williams Landing, Williamstown, Wyndham Vale and Yarraville
The document can be accessed electronically or printed and kept in the car to use when the opportunity arises. Access the guide here.
We have also created a Pinterest board with the playgrounds.
A map with the playground locations and links to the reviews and photos is here:
