Hays Paddock Playground, Longstaff Street, Kew East.
This is the original all-abilities playground in Melbourne. Great for young, old, disabled and able-bodied kids. A large enclosed area full of discovery.
This has been feted as one of the best playgrounds in Melbourne for a number of years. It is a beautifully crafted Play Space rather than an Adventure Playground.
It is adventure with a little a – certainly if you equate Adventure with adrenaline. Nevertheless it packs a lot of punch – many slides and swings, large butterflies flying above, large see-saw, ring of toadstools to jump across, springers, large rope climbing frame, large hammocks to swing back and forth, big sandpit and other additions… melbourneplaygrounds.com.au
