Find out about the playgrounds in Bayside which we have recently upgraded to make them more accessible, safe and fun.
From Brighton to Beaumaris, over a 10-year plan we're upgrading all 61 playgrounds around the municipality. Let us know what you think about our new playgrounds via Have Your Say.
Check out these playgrounds that have recently been upgraded:
Banksia Reserve playground
Tramway Parade, Beaumaris
All aboard the play train and head to the new town-themed playground at Banksia Reserve, Beaumaris. The mini post office, police station and shop counter are open for business, offering local children hours of imaginative play. Children can also swing, slide, twirl and dig to their heart’s content on new monkey bars, an orbit carousel, Beaumaris fossil sand sculptures, tunnels and rubber train track steppers. The much-loved swings and Banksia trees remain, completing this unique playspace for Bayside residents.
Beach Park Sandringham Gardens playground
Located in the foreshore reserve just south of the Sandringham Rotunda
Climb to the top of the tower to spy approaching pirates, get up close and personal with our two aquatic sculptures, Octo-pus and Chops the fish. Hold on tight and fly/spin through the air on the rope carousel or bounce the trampolines. These are just some of the options for play at the new Beach Park playground in Sandringham. And we haven’t forgotten the young-at heart, with yet another seniors’ exercise area to keep a spring in the step.
Beaumaris Reserve playground
Cloris Avenue, Beaumaris
A quirky and interesting playground set amongst bushes and trees. A shaded structure has a big sandpit with sandplay tables. A main wooden structure has two wave slides, rope ladder, tic-tac-toe, spiral ladder and multiple levels. A small bird's nest swing, two standard swings and a speed boat on springs are bound to delight all age groups.
