The new Olinda Forest Playspace on the former Olinda Golf Course in Olinda has to be the best playground near Melbourne, with a spectacular setting and views out across the Yarra Valley. If you’re looking for somewhere new to take the kids this exciting new $1.8 million play space is proving to be a big hit.
The new nature-based playspace includes plenty of fun to entertain the whole family with an all-ability playground, picnic facilities, new barbecues, a dog off-lead area and toilet block. Carved owls are nestled at the lower end of the playground near the flying fox and bright blue slides. There’s a big concrete lizard for the kids to play on and around. In the little kid’s area, carved wooden toadstools and tiny cubby houses for kids to play in. The picnic shelter is situated in the centre of the playground with plenty of tables and benches plus a water fountain.
The Olinda play space is at 75-77 Olinda-Monbulk Road, Olinda.
