Somers Parade Playground, Altona


Sitting opposite the shops on Somers Parade in Altona (near the corner of Maidstone Street) is this little playground. We ventured over for a play after stopping by the bakery and picking up some items for lunch.  For the kids who like watching buses, the bus stop is also within viewing distance from the playground.

Jack liked::

Playing in the smaller cubby-type playground, having a ride in the spring rocker and fighting his dad for the baby swing! The larger section of playground held little interest for Jack. The steps leading to the smaller section were fine for going up, but fairly narrow for Jack to come back down and he had a few issues. If he went down the slide everything would have been better!
