Parks & Playgrounds Kids Activities Melbourne
Let's take a moment to appreciate a park that suits everyone and we mean everyone! Where can you find a beautiful nature inspired playground upgrade, a full size basketball/netball court and an off-leash dog park all in the one spot? Julier Reserve in Port Melbourne are what park dreams are made of!
This nature inspired playground set on a corner block, winds and weaves with stepping stones, old railway sleepers, a teepee, little fairy mushrooms, a swing basket, climbing frame with tunnel slide and some other notable play equipment. There's no shade covers but some shade coverage by old oak trees. There's a few picnic areas complete with benches and tables, a water bubbler, bike hoops and scattered garden beds.
Next to the playground is an equally impressive full size basketball and netball court. If you've got a kid, like us, who just wants to throw or kick a ball this is their happy place! There's a toilet block next to the blue soft landing court and the brick wall makes a perfect handball or soccer practising wall! There's about 6 basketball and 6 netball hoops to shoot a ball.
Off leash dog park
Next to the basketball court is an off leash dog park with a cicular concrete path all around the park which is just perfect for a scooter ride or bike laps and is completed with seating! Kick a ball in the middle of the big grassed area or watch your dog hard at play. The only downside is it isn't fenced.
