Parks & Playgrounds Kids Activities Melbourne
Crisp air, cool sunny days and The Great Outdoors.
Take a visit to Melbourne's beautiful park life and enjoy some local jems like the Family-friendly Botanic Gardens, Historic Como House, adventure playgrounds and more. These green spaces make the perfect place to stroll, ride bikes, scooter, throw a ball, picnic or just sit in the sunshine.
Pack a picnic, this playground is smack bang amonst the greenery and a popular place where families flock to enjoy all the amenities. Be it a birthday party, family gathering, bike ride, walking the dogs, a play at the park or to shoot some hoops - it's got it all.
Allnut Park is super for both littlies and their older siblings and friends. There's a toddler zone with an array of colourful equipment under the big gum trees and an older section for the bigger kids which is partly shaded.
Ask us how we entertain and please all three kids at once - this place screams at us all the time! A skate park, a playground with views and the beach and a cafe with take away coffee - winning!
Soak up some rays, take in the sunset (or sunrise!), have a splash and a play at Marina Reserve - a highly valued reserve on the St Kilda foreshore. If you've got a dog, the bonus is, dogs are permitted off leash (but dogs are not permitted within 5m of the playground, BBQ and skate space). There's a large grassed area in between the skate park and playground that's just perfect to throw the ball to your four-legged friend or play some frisbee or even fly a kite.
For families living in or close to the area, you may not even know you have this National Park on your doorstep. The Organ Pipes National Park is in Melbourne's north west, just off the Calder Freeway by the airport and is a mighty hidden treasure and one the whole family will enjoy if you don't mind a short but steep walk. It contains spectacular geological formations, created over a million years ago by volcanic activity.
