The playground at Piney Lakes Reserve in Winthrop has undergone a makeover and has now reopened for the children of Perth to enjoy.

Judging by the old play equipment, some bits of which have been left at the playground at this extensive park and bushland, the playground was well overdue for an update.



Most of the play equipment has been replaced with the sensory play area. There is sand play with a big, colourful tepee and a little igloo that the kids can run in and out of, all surrounded by soft padding.

The playground has a little lake, which is very shallow, with a bridge over it, although there are loose rocks, so make sure the kids don’t start throwing the rocks around or at each other.

Piney Lakes is home – surprisingly – to a lovely lake, which has a fountain in the middle. It is not fenced, so always keep an eye on children around the water.



Along with sensory play, there are two Swing sets and a swing with an accessible seat, plus a tripod swing. In this area there is also a little roundabout.



The old bridge still stands, and now leads to a modern climbing frame with ropes and ladders and is somewhat hidden away from the rest of the playground. The old tyre play also remains.

Piney Lakes has toilets, although they were being redeveloped on our visit. The bushland doesn’t have a café, and there aren’t any in the immediate vicinity. The nearest are along Leach Highway, Garden City Shopping Centre, Bull Creek Shopping Centre or at the nearby Brentwood shops on Moolyeen Road. There are barbeques at the playground, along with drinking fountains.



There are plenty of pram-friendly walking trails in the reserve, and you can take your dog for a walk along the paths but they must be kept on a leash.
