Soldiers Reserve, Werribee


This playground is located on Duncans Road and it easily spotted as you drive along the road. It’s within close proximity to Werribee Secondary College, and there is also a football oval in the same precinct. I parked in the side street, where there is heaps of parking and walked through to the playground. The area was deserted when I visited mid-week. This is a great playground if you had multiples of different ages and abilities. There are a few seats around for the parents too. It was also fenced off from the main road, for parents that have wanderers.

Jack liked:

the smaller playground to start with, but he did get extremely adventurous and climb through things that I never thought he would in the bigger, climbing area! He made it through a tunnel of nets, to reach the solid platform, before trying to climb up the ladder rope to the slide. Every time I thought he was safe and I’d take a photo, or try to, he’d take the wrong step, and fall slightly. This is definitely not a park to be away from the little, adventurous ones! He liked the slide, but there was no ‘easy’ ladder’ or pathway to get him up to the top by himself. I was thankful when he eventually retreated to the other area to climb up the stairs!
