Valley Reserve Adventure Play Space, Mount Waverley


Valley Reserve is a 15 hectare bushland reserve situated within Melbourne’s quiet eastern suburb of Mount Waverley. The reserve provides a vital habitat for a wide range of fauna and has remained intact as an insight into how Mount Waverley looked before urban development.

There are some lovely bush walking tracks and a one of a kind adventure playground families flock to. The City of Monash have done a wonderful job respecting the existing natural bushland, you won’t find bright coloured plastic slides here, but the award winning space still has a good mix of traditional play equipment and nature based elements for toddlers right up to the teen age group.

The playspace includes a huge rope climbing obstacle course area that resembles something like the orangutan enclosure at the zoo, lookout towers, double racer flying fox, bird nest swing, sand pit (bring your own buckets and spades), spinning carousel, slides, swings, spring rockers, dry creek bed, plus lots of stepping and balancing logs.

Look out for the map at the beginning of the playground where kids can search within the reserve for a Eastern Long-necked Tutle, giant King Parrot, Yellow tailed Black Cockatoo and Powful Owl sculptures scattered around. Information is provided about each animal and their habitat, my kids particularly loved this scavenger hunt and reading all the fun facts about the animals.

Public toilets can be found at the car park, there’s also barbecue facilities, sheltered picnic tables to use for family gatherings and celebrations with friends.
