Finding an awesome playground is like finding gold… both kids and parents will be happy! Did you know about these 3 fun parks and playgrounds in Mentone? The kids will LOVE them!
1. Mentone Racecourse Reserve
Location: 12 Cedar Street, Mentone
Facilities: Playground, BBQ areas, toilets
Giddy up and ride along to this awesome reserve, you won’t be disappointed! The Mentone Racecourse Reserve also features a lake which is home to many ducks, fish and other wildlife. As this park backs on to the old Mentone Racecourse it has a horse theme throughout the playground, with horse statues, ride-on rocking horses and horses painted on various playground equipment. This park also has a sand pit and an asphalt area for playing basketball.
This playground also has a sheltered BBQ area, toilets, undercover seating and grassed areas, making it the perfect place to take the kids. They will have endless amounts of fun exploring this large reserve.
2. Dolomore Reserve Playground
Location: First Street, Parkdale
Facilities: Playground, toilets, picnic seating areas, fully fenced
This playground is one of our favourites and is only a couple of streets away from Thrift Park Shopping Centre. Dolomore Reserve Playground is slightly hidden, out of the way down a small side street surrounded by beautiful trees, and is almost enchanted with its tree house, wooden playground equipment and giant climbing tree. The kids will have great fun exploring and spending hours playing in the trees, as well as enjoying the new modern equipment.
3. Keith Styles Playground
Location: 44 Venice Street, Mentone
Facilities: Playground, BBQ areas, suitable for young children, fully fenced
If you have toddlers then this park may be perfect for you, as it’s fully fenced. The reserve around the Keith Styles Playground has lovely gardens, grassed areas perfect for picnics and undercover seating areas.
Unfortunately, the park doesn’t have toilets, however it is close by to many great cafes perfect for taking the kids for a bite to eat or a treat after a trip to the playground. Here’s a great list of cafes close by to the park.
We hope one of these brilliant playgrounds becomes a great new place to take the kids for some free outdoor fun.
