A lovely shaded little park with lots of colourful play areas for the kids.
Roleystone is a gorgeous, leafy suburb in the Perth hills and is the home of the Araluen Botanic Garden. My children and I recently discovered the delightful Borrello Park in Roleystone and went for a visit.
Borrello Park is located along the Brookton Highway, with the Billeroy Road turnoff located just before the Vibe petrol station, but on the opposite side of the road. There is lots of natural shade surrounding the play areas, plus public barbecues and a public toilet.
The Mandurah Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Mandurah mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
The park has a little creek running through it, which may be appealing to kids who like to look for tadpoles and things like that.
Just be aware that the park does run along the Brookton Highway, and there is no fence separating the two. There is a fair bit of space between the park and the road but keep an eye on little runners regardless.
As mentioned, the park has a public toilet, a small picnic area and barbecues. There isnít a cafe at the park itself, but Orchard Espresso is only a short drive away on Jarrah Road, in the small shopping complex.
If you are having a day out in the hills or live in the area and just havenít gotten around to visiting, Borrello Park is a great little spot for a play and a pit stop in the shade.
