As you turn off Point Cook Road, and onto a long, winding road, you pass numerous carparks dedicated to bird watching and plane viewing platforms. Once you reach the furthest carpark, you can view one of the playground through the trees. There are numerous BBQ shelters in the area, which I think you can hire for functions. There are also toilets around. As you wander up to the first playground, you catch a glimpse of a second play area further through the trees. There’s a Petanque Court for you to have a game, or if you are feeling adventurous you can even visit the beach! Word of warning to check the opening hours to the park – the gates are shut an hour before closing. The hours vary depending on the season and can be found here.

the first playground we came to. It was quiet down here being a mid-week visit, except for the weed-control team. There had been a bit of rain around, so some of the playground was still wet, not that Jack minded splashing in the puddles. The first playground is low, and Jack had no issues climbing onto the structure. When we ventured over to the second play structure, he ran right up, but his shoes must’ve been slippery and he slipped climbing up the steel ladder. This made the rest of our visit quite hard. All he wanted was hugs, and I stupidly left my carrier in the car! I thought we’d try to wander to the beach, but didn’t realise how far the walk can be, with a toddler balanced on your hip! Jack finally brightened as we were leaving the beach, and he went back for a play at the blue boat themed park before we left.
