Harleston Park Adventure Playground, Elsternwick
Harleston Park is a quiet playground hidden in the back streets of Elsternwick. Its a very popular park amongst the locals and is famous to Melbourne families for its huge long slippery dip that sits atop of the hill and kids can slide down to the bottom.
The adventure playground features a climbing mound, variety of other slides, double tower climbing fort with connecting rope bridge, a sensory maze, giant acorn cubby house, swings, spinning carousel, toddler play equipment, sand pit and basketball court.
There is also a wonderful rocky river water feature for the warmer months, although we have visited in winter and the water stream was flowing, so pack the gumboots and a towel for some extra exploring in the creek bed too.
