Kidding Around … Wombat Bend Playspace

We are lucky enough to know so many people who love Kidding Around Australia as much as we do and over the coming months we will be introducing you to these wonderful parents as they become guest contributors on our site!

Today we would like to introduce you to Kirrilee! Kirrilee has a 3 year old son Thomas and, along with her husband, is expecting her second son in a few short weeks! We are so excited to meet him!

Kirrilee took Thomas to the Wombat Bend Playspace in Templestowe Lower in Victoria recently and it looks like an absolute cracker of a playground!

WBWombat Bend Playspace is located in Finns Reserve and is perfect for creative play! Decorated with community art, Wombat Bend has sensory play activities, accessible path networks, an ampitheatre and native forest walk and is suitable for children of all abilities, aged 1-14 years.

There is lots of space for kids to run around and its completely fenced in! With plenty of different activities like slides, swings, a flying fox, carousel, seesaw, giant sandpit and a maze the kids will be kept entertained for hours.

Mine and Thomas’ favourite was the elevated sandpit with water canals controlled by a tap you turn on to create a water flow that runs down into the big sandpit.

Wombat Bend PlayspaceArt is everywhere with a large mosaic titled ‘The Circle of Friends,’ running feet tiles and the maze panels are fantastic.

Wombat Bend PlayspaceIt had lots of shady areas, toilets, undercover picnic tables and BBQ area. Car parking was not a problem and the only thing I noticed that seemed a miss was a lack of drinking fountains. The one I did find needed maintenance and didn’t work.

Kirrilee Says

It gets hot so remember hats and sunscreen (and a drink bottle)! We really loved it and will definitely return!
