off Trafalgar avenue, and hidden behind the Altona Meadows Community Centre. This park was very clean, parking was easy, and it was quiet on the day we dropped past. The thing I liked about this park was the mixture of surfaces. When Jack was first walking it was hard to find the parks that were friendly for little feet, as we didn’t have him in shoes at first. I wish we knew about this park earlier. This park also caters for a range of ages and climbing abilities. There’s also plenty of room to kick a footy or play basketball.
2 separate areas, with undercover seating and BBQ facilities. There appears to be fitness equipment at the far end of the grass reserve, but I didn’t venture down that far. There’s also a basketball court. This park is great for those that learning to walk as there is a soft rubber surface/pathway between the areas of tanbark.

the first area, nearest to the car park the best. He was more than able to wander and play, and there were easy bits for him to navigate and harder bits, that he didn’t get the hang of. He’s yet to learn how the totem pole things work, and he’s still a bit small to climb up the net ladders. He was happy that he could get up to the big slide, and he was happy to jump into the spring rockers. He’s always happy to pretend to steer the steering wheel as well.
