Bullrush Park, Wellard

All over Perth suburbs, little adventure parks are popping up and replacing the old metal climbing frames and monkey bars. Rope play and sensory play are seemingly more popular than ever at playgrounds, and Bullrush Park in Wellard is no exception.



Bullrush Park Wellard


My daughter and I stumbled upon this great little playground the other day and decided to stop for a play. While relatively small, it packs a lot into the space, including its centrepiece – an overhead play structure with bridges, ropes and slides.

There are several entrances to the park, but the play structure bridge runs from one side of the park to the other. A lot of the space is accessible via uneven steps, which are great for adventurous kids, but not so great for a pregnant woman with a curious 20-month old toddler. Although the steps – like most of the park – is covered in a soft, rubber matting material, we decided to take the smooth and very even steps instead.

The play structure is filled with fun things for the kids to do – there is a rope bridge leading up to a giant green tower, which also has rope play inside. There are ladders to climb and poles to slide down, as well as sensory play. There is a big, green twisting slide leading down from the structure, as well as another slide, which is not part of the play structure.

My only advice would be to just be very careful with toddlers and younger children on the bridge as there are parts that aren’t fenced off, such as where the rope ladders are positioned – so just be careful they don’t head over for these parts for a look. Even with the soft sand and rubber matting on the ground, it’s still a long way for a little person to drop.

Younger kids will love the water and sand play station, which has levers to pull and buckets to fill. There’s also a mini see-saw and a mini spinning wheel. If you have kids who love to climb, they will enjoy climbing up and down the tunnel, which is also padded with the soft matting. The park has a swing set with two swings – one of which is designed for young children and is fully enclosed, so no fiddly ‘seatbelt’ to mess around with. The park has a big focus on nature, with various fauna motifs dotted around and lots of natural bush throughout.

Bullrush park has drinking water available, along with undercover picnic areas and public barbeques for use. There aren’t really any shops close by, with the nearest being the shops on Johnson Road at Bertram or Kwinana Marketplace.

If you need a break from the same old monkey bars and climbing frame, take a look at Bullrush Park. For a little park, it’s sure to be a big hit with the kids.
