Parks & Playgrounds Kids Activities Melbourne
Ride the waves, paddle in the water, play in the sand and slip, slop, slap on the shore.
Here's a few we frequent when the sun is out and we're ready to play.
St Kilda: A hotspot for tourists and locals alike and famed with a backdrop of Luna Park and Acland Street or Fitzroy Street within walking distance. Along the foreshore or in the water you can rollerblade, go fishing, windsurf or go kite boarding or just relax by the sand with your fish and chips or grab an ice-cream or Gelato from 7 Apples on Acland Street and walk the boardwalk.
Brighton: Most famous for its iconic stand-out coloured beach boxes, this beach oozes clean water and sand. Take a stroll along the Middle Brighton Pier and take in the views of Port Phillip Bay. The Middle Brighton Sea Baths are within close distance as are cafes and restaurants.
Albert Park Beach: One of the most popular inner city Melbourne beaches that we flock to with its shallow pools of water making it a dream for kids to paddle in. There's another big attraction here. The recently re-opened Plum Garland Memorial Playground. What's better than a swim, paddle and dig on the beach? A playground beachside with a ground cover of soft sand! Boasting sun loungers, tunnels, a lookout and twisty slide, bottled water re-fill station, a baby swing and mini bouncy trampoline with climbing frame makes this playground a fun new hangout beachside.
Chelsea Beach: Further along the bay and in between Edithvale and Bonbeach, Chelsea Beach has a backdrop of beach boxes and is a popular spot amongst locals. There's a parking area for 100 cars near the Surf Life Saving Club and easy access by train.
