Ardrie Park Playground, Malvern East
The lovely Ardrie Park is a hidden gem in the leafy suburb of Malvern East, shaded with established elm trees, spacious open lawns, tennis courts, fully fenced children’s playground, barbecue area and an off lead dog park, its a great relaxing spot to take the family.
Tucked behind the hustle and bustle of busy streets, Ardrie Park playground is mostly shaded by the trees and one huge shade cloth and features basic play equipment that would entertain kids of all ages. Including a toddler structure, see-saw, slides, multiple swings (infant and regular swings) monkey bars, two small flying foxes and a spring rocker.
There’s plenty of bench seating within the playground fencing, a barbecue near by and picnic tables to enjoy with family and friends, a toilet block is close by to the park as well.
If the kids need to burn more energy the pathways are not sealed, but there were plenty of kids riding scooters and balance bikes on the park foot paths the day we visited.
