This playground is located on Battery Road, in Williamstown, which is opposite the footy oval at Cyril Curtain Reserve. On a clear day you can watch the container ships go in and out of port. The playground floor is made of soft fall which is great for those that aren’t quite stable on their feet and it stops the little ones constantly eating tanbark or sand. There are picnic benches, BBQ facilities and even toilets up further. On the day we played, I also took Jack’s balance bike with us, and we headed around the corner and onto the playground near the beach and botanic gardens. Great way to spend the morning.

When we first arrived, he headed straight for the fixed binoculars – he had no idea what to do with them, but he had a go. He also sat on the dolphin on the way through to the playground. We’ve played here before when visiting the Mamma Knows West market on at the function centre, at the footy ground, but I didn’t have my camera on me. Jack was more that happy to have another play here, as there is plenty to do. For the first time, he tried doing the bridge walk, where you need to weave around the metal posts, and he managed this quite well. We were here with a handful of other kids (school holidays) so I think he saw someone else and copied. After finishing having a play here, we grabbed the balance bike from the car, and headed along the bike path. We managed a ride all the way to the Botanic Gardens, and only 1/3 of the way back to the car, before Jack just got too tired.
