Ron Barassi Snr Park, Docklands Drive, Docklands




The centrepiece of the playground is a huge wooden cone with ladders inside which lead to a big curved metal slide and a big spiral metal slide. The main playground area is set in a huge sandpit with lovely soft white sand - there's enough sand here to setup a Bedouin village and still have enough space to play. There is a large sand play area with multiple levels, conveyors, pipes and spades - there's hours of fun play time possible here.

There is also a horizontal rope net, two springers with car tyre seats, rope bridge, top of the range sand digger, birds nest swing, scrambling wall and small metal slide which ends in the sand pit.

In the warmer weather a water play area is sure to be a big hit. There is a pump and water source which leads down a channel with a chance to block the water and create a dam.

Unshaded seats and plenty of big bags filled with sand which create the playground area can be used for a place to sit. Considering you are located next to a freeway, the noise isn't too noticeable. Located next to an oval with footy posts and soccer goals. There are toilets 50m away at the Pavilion and the Moonee Ponds Creek Path is only 200m away.

Behind the Pavilion are two unshaded tables, BBQ and water tap. There is the usual warning about metal slides getting hot during summer.

The playground is located at the west end of Docklands Drive next to the support columns for the freeway. Plenty of free parking.
