Over the past few years, Perth's playground designers have done a fantastic job of prioritising social inclusion for local children. Perth playgrounds are now incorporating the needs of children of all abilities, with equipment such as wheelchair friendly play structures, accessible swings and flying foxes and accessible toilets.

Perth Mums Group have put together a list of some of the best accessible playgrounds in and around the city.

Have we missed your favourite accessible playground? Feel free to leave a comment on this article and we’ll add it to the list!

Piney Lakes Reserve Playground
Murdoch Drive, Murdoch
Perth Mums Group Review

The playground at Piney Lakes Reserve in Murdoch has recently had a makeover, with new and accessible play equipment added. This includes accessible footpaths, a swing with harness and mirror and a roundabout that will hold a wheelchair. The only drawback to this park is the nearby lake, which is not fenced, so always keep an eye on your children.

Bibra Lake Regional Playground
Progress Avenue, Bibra Lake
Perth Mums Group Review

The impressive Bibra Lake Regional Playground has a number of accessible features, including sound and water play for the visually impaired, wheelchair accessible barbeques, supportive seats on the swings, seesaws and flying fox. There is also disabled change facilities that include tracking hoists, height adjustable adult sized changing bench, automatic doors and enough space for two carers.

Kwinana Adventure Park, Calista
Walgreen Avenue, Calista
Perth Mums Group Review

The Kwinana Adventure Park was completed in late 2016 and was designed to be as accessible and inclusive as possible. One of the major highlights of the playground is an elevated play structure called the Tree Maze, which is wheelchair accessible from start to finish, has sensory elements and a ‘clatter bridge’, which wobbles from side to side as you step over it. There is an all abilities flying fox, accessible toilets and even an adult change table and hoist.
