A beautiful park hidden away in Meadow Springs, Mandurah.

The only bad thing about the Quarry Adventure Park in Meadow Springs (Mandurah) is finding it. Hidden away in the new estate of Meadow Springs, this beautiful and exciting park has two main areas, only one of which is visible from the road.

The front area has a great climbing area, geometric shapes piled on one another in a large sandpit, plus beautiful grassed areas, BBQs, toilets, and a play area for younger children. Built into a huge soft-play pit there is a circular net swing, things to balance on, and a funky climbing castle with slides galore.

Behind this area, hidden in the quarry from which it gets its name, is a brilliant ropes course, with a long bumpy slide set into the side of the quarry. Naturally, there are stairs to get up to the top, but for the more adventurous, a series of rope nets and ladders. There is also a standalone rope dome, whizzy things and a hammock (not as relaxing as it looks).

This is all set in the tranquillity of natural bushland (neatly fenced to prevent escape), rolling grassed areas (great for rolling), an amphitheatre, and decks looking out to the bushland.

In the lower area are two free electric BBQs and even a free filtered water station. There are plenty of low walls for parents to sit and watch the kids play.

There wouldn't be much shade from the midday sun in the lower quarry playground, but plenty under the large trees in the upper area.

In all, this is a pretty awesome playground for kids of all ages, but particularly older kids. There is wheelchair and pram access via sloping paths to the left of the upper playground, and if you were wondering adults can go on the bumpy slide (I was considering it) the way it is built limits the size of people who can climb onto the upper access point. Not impossible, just undignified.
