Armadale has some fantastic parks and playgrounds for residents and visitors to enjoy!
If there is one thing that Perth does well, it is parks and playgrounds. Our suburbs have an abundance of places to take the kids so they can run around, climb, swing, slide and get dirty, and the city of Armadale is no different.
Armadale has some truly great parks for residents and visitors to enjoy. Here are some of the top playgrounds to visit in Armadale.
This cool little playground is located at the Rossiter Pavilion, a new community space in Piara Waters. It packs a lot into a small space, including swings, three mini in-ground trampolines, nature play, sand play, a small rock climbing wall and undercover picnic tables. There are also toilets located at the pavilion.
Rossiter Pavilion Playground
Shipwreck Park, Hilbert Corner of Forrest Road and Eleventh Road, Hilbert
This innovative park features regularly on my list of top parks and for good reason. Not only is it fully fenced to keep little wanderers in, but it has an absolute overload of activities and places for the kids to explore. Just some of the features include the fantastic shipwreck themed play area, a flying fox with an accessible seat, sand and water play, plenty of swings, mini in-ground trampolines and toilets and change facilities. There is also a dog park just a few metres away too!
Optus Stadium will be transformed into the cityís biggest Christmas Festival in November and December.
Robot Park, Piara Waters Mason Road, Piara Waters
Piara Waters actually has a number of awesome little parks dotted around, but this one is the biggest and possibly the best. Named Robot Park for its robot theme and giant robot head cubby house, it also has a flying fox, play structure, sand and water play and more. There is also a toilet at the park.
Frye Park Kelmscott Clifton Street, Kelmscott
This great little park in Kelmscott has a small pirate ship play structure as the centrepiece, along with plenty of marine themed play equipment. There is a separate area for younger children plus a tripod swing. The accompanying Frye Park Pavilion also has public toilets.
Lions Park Mount Nasura Angorra Road, Mount Nasura
I like this park for its little bike track, play kitchen and the fact there are public toilets available. It is easily the smallest park on this list but itís got some great features along with those already mentioned. There is accessible swing, musical play and lots to explore in the natural surrounds.
Memorial Park Armadale Jull Street, Armadale
Memorial Park is conveniently located outside Armadale Shopping City, making it a great place to take the kids shopping! It has recently had a makeover and has a couple of train-themed play areas, a funky four-seater see-saw, swings, sand and water play and musical instruments. There is also plenty of cafes in and around Jull Street and in the shopping centre to get your coffee fix! Being right next to the shopping centre, there are toilets only a short walk away.
Dovedale Park, Harrisdale Gracefield Boulevard, Harrisdale
A lovely little nature park nestled among the suburbs! This playground has a big focus on the natural, bush surrounds, plus a flying fox, small climbing frame and a tripod swing, plus lots of logs and beams for balancing.
So tick all of these great playgrounds off your list! For even more fantastic parks and playgrounds in Perth, read on here.
