A small but fantastic pirate ship themed playground which is great for preschoolers and toddlers.

As the average Perth backyard shrinks to an all time low number of square metres, suburban parks and playgrounds are popping up all over in an effort to get children and their families outside. Perth would seriously have to be up there for one of the biggest ratios of playgrounds and parks per capita!



Frye Park in Kelmscott is the home of the Frye Park Pavilion, a local community centre for City of Armadale residents, and it also has a small but totally awesome playground!

The main play structure is a pirate ship, with all sorts of bells and whistles for the kids to discover - or in this case, sensory play, a child-powered music player and even an opportunity for children to walk the plank.



The pirate ship playground is most suited to toddlers and preschoolers, and has a couple of slides and chairs underneath to sit and discover the sensory play. My daughter thought the best part of the playground was the ‘kid-powered’ music player - the player has a small wheel to spin with the palm of your hand and with enough spinning it generates the energy and the music! We had a little boogie and my daughter just kept going back for a dance - she absolutely loved it!



The park has a separate area for toddlers. Here you will find a small play structure, little rockers and a set of swings.



Just next to the pirate ship is a marine inspired see-saw, a little sailing boat and a birds nest swing. There is also a football field with soccer goals to kick the ball around.

Some of the amenities at the park include shaded picnic tables and benches and over at the pavilion are toilets, although I did not see a change table. There is plenty of parking in the pavilion car park. The pavilion holds various community classes, which you can read more about here. On the other side of the pavilion to the park is a basketball court.



There is no cafe or food outlets at the park itself, but there are plenty of places to eat along Albany Highway, including cafes and fast food outlets.



If you are new to the area or are not too far away in one of the nearby suburbs, Frye Park is worth a look for a morning or afternoon out with the youngest members of the family. It’s a lovely little park with plenty to occupy them.
