This park sits within the Saltwater Reserve – the area is a huge complex of sporting ovals and also has Point Cook’s only off-lead (fenced) dog park. There is heaps of space to run, play and also plenty of parking. The surface is made of both tanbark and rubber- compound (under the swings and the slides are built on mounds of it). There isn’t a huge amount of shade at this point in time.
- a plethora of swings (2 x normal, 2 x toddler harnessed, 1 x bear swing with exceptional seat belt harness – I would assume that this is for even younger bubs)
- a few different slides
- climbing ropes
- nest swing
- see-saw for 2
- weird see-saw spring-loaded chairs (3 different types)
- seated playground spinner
- BBQ’s and drinking fountain
the unusual teddy bear shaped swing. He made a bee-line straight for it so I’m assuming it’s either the shape or the colour that drew him in. He was also happy trying to climb up the rubber mounds – although largely unsuccessful at getting to the top. He may have to wait for his little legs to grow more! I was actually amazed he didn’t make a run for the dog park as dogs generally get his attention quite fast. This park looks a little lacklustre, but there was more than enough to keep Jack occupied.
