Heads up, Melbourne mamas. Grab some snacks and prep the kiddos for action, because Lyndarum North playground is now open and it’s serving up some tall thrills.
Positioned around 40 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, the arena combines relaxing grassy expanses with towering adventures. And from teeny-tiny minis to fearless teens, this is a play zone with something for all ages.
The highest heights
Packing some major wow-factor is the Cubic Tower positioned smack-bang in the centre of the park. Designed by Lark Industries, the ultra-modern feat dials up the excitement by taking kids eight metres above the ground and dishes up glorious views of Melbourne’s city from the top.
Resembling chunky-bumpy robot arms, two swirling tube slides descend from the tower, and you can safely expect squeals-a-plenty as kiddos slip n’ slide aaaaaall the way back to terra firma.
Tot-friendly tunnels and slides
With in-ground mini tramps installed within the central play arena, little jumping beans are well catered for here. And if they happen to bounce too high, you’ve got peace of mind knowing the surrounding deck is crafted from soft-fall rubber.
As littlies make their way around the dune-like walls of the play pit, they’ll find tiered tunnels to scuttle through, rope climbs to tackle and extra-long slides to hoon down.
Don’t forget to pack a ball. With a half-size basketball court on-site, sporty kids can hone their hoops and use up what energy is left after taking on the tower – ten times!
And when it’s time to chill …
…there are more than a few perfect spots to do just that. Bring a blanket and pull up a patch of grass or take a breather with tuckered-out kids in the wooden teepee. There are also sheltered picnic tables on offer in the pavilion, which means….birthday parties!
Bright pops of colour, bucket loads of fun and a grassy backdrop. Add this one to your list, pack for the whole afternoon and get out there to check it out.
