Fun with Frances

This month Frances and I had fun at Mernda Villages Adventure Playground on Mernda Village Drive Three huge horse shapes dominate the top level of the playground which has a structure with levels and nooks and crannies and includes a metal slide, caves, fireman's pole, flying fox, ramp, walkways, steps and ladders. A ramp leads to an area of wooden platforms with a short tunnel slide, fireman's pole, ladder and scrambling wall. Further along there is a large sculptured sandpit with a roof, tractor embedded into the path, seesaw and four swings. The playground is very spread-out and stretches along the road and is not far from the car park and water, so you will need to keep an eye on the kids. there is not a lot of seating around the playground. Nearby there are the wetlands and a barbeque are with shelter and a lot of seating. Please email info@yourchildinwhittlesea.com.au or send a message to me on Facebook, if there is park you would like me to review, .
