Grace Park Playground, Hawthorn
The lovely tree lined Grace Park is a charming outdoor space for families to enjoy all year round, located right next door to Grace Park Hawthorn Club tennis courts in Melbourne’s eastern suburb of Hawthorn.
There’s a half court Basketball key and squash tennis wall if you’re feeling active and a sweet playground that has just the right amount of play equipment to entertain the kids.
The children’s playground includes a small flying fox, see-saw, swings, wooden cubby house, large sand pit (byo buckets and spades) spinning carousel, rope climbing frame, monkey bars, and slides.
The park has plenty of open space lots of grassy lawns to picnic on or kick a ball and is situated close to the train line. On our visit we witnessed a number of “choo choos” driving by while playing at the playground, which really made my 2 year olds day.
