Parks & Playgrounds Kids Activities Melbourne
We love Alma Park, afterall it is one of our local playground hangouts!
This grand playground is divided into different areas and if you've arrived via Alma Road you'll first run into the wooden treehouse. It then opens out into a vast playing field of swings, climbing frames, mini flying fox, twisty slides, another slide with wooden cubby house underneath and tunnels to enter. There's more adventure to be had on the bigger flying fox - so good we've seen Adults climb on. The Slug sculpture is a colourful addition too with its all over mosaic tiles.
You'll need a couple of hours to spare if you want to reap all of its rewards. It doesn't have any designated shade sails but it does benefit from huge shady trees all over the place. The only downfall is it's not fenced from busy Alma road though the treehouse and rest of the park is set back. There is a swamp area running through part of the park too but it's completely dry at the moment.
Smack bang in the middle of the playground is picnic tables and chairs and BBQ facilities - perfect for hosting a birthday party and larger gatherings. There's also an oval for ball play or a run around and a train track goes directly through the middle of Alma Park making it perfect for train spotters!
- There's ample free parking available on Alma Road.
- No cafe around but we get our takeaway coffee from Little Captain on Inkerman Street or the Neighbours Cafe on the corner of Chapel and Inkerman Streets.
- Kill some time on a Saturday before or after play at the Hank Marvin Market!
- New toilet block and sporting facilities block are now open
