Two Brand New Nature Playscapes At Lake Claremont

by westb (follow)
Two new nature playgrounds for the kids of Perth to enjoy!

Perth playgrounds, specifically nature-based playgrounds seem to be popping up weekly at the moment, and the new ones at Lake Claremont in Perthís western suburbs are well worth a trip. Kids of all ages will find something to keep them busy and the play equipment was obviously designed with both innovation and with a respect for the local surroundings.

Couple a trip to the new playgrounds with a walk around to the old faithful Lake Claremont park and a coffee at Lake Espresso Cafť and you have a fun filled morning or afternoon.

Set just off Elliott Road, there are two new playgrounds to try out. Firstly, there is a smaller toddler suited space adjacent to Lake Espresso Cafe. This little park has a wooden tepee, log type stepping stones and a rather fancy sandpit complete with a sand table and activities. There is outdoor seating nearby, so it is the perfect place for a coffee break or to meet up with friends with small children and still have some quality adult conversation. This area will become a favourite for mothersí groups.

Sandpit to rival all others


The larger playground caters for older children. My favourite feature is the huge gum tree that centres the equipment and lays close to the ground. The way it has been incorporated into the park is lovely. Itís perfect for some safer tree climbing. Additionally, there is an interesting fort, relatively high, with lots of challenging climbing features including ropes and steps.

The sandpit, filled with course river sand is red in colour, reflecting the dirt and trees surrounding. Be sure to pack the buckets and spades. It also contains a pully system for some serious excavation work. All the playground features are Ďnature basedí, made of wood and are in keeping with the bush surroundings.

Once these playgrounds have been exhausted, be sure to walk, ride or scoot around the lake to the third playground, stopping to spot birds in the beautiful wetland on route. This playground has been established at Lake Claremont for quite a while. It is more suited to younger children and has a very sweet cubbyhouse, swings and a little slide, as well as some smaller climbing activities and talking tubes.

There is some great fitness equipment near this smaller third park, I canít recall seeing the like of it elsewhere in Perth. Older children seem drawn to it as itís never vacant. It includes lots of bikes, elliptical trainers and climbing type bars.

All in all, Lake Claremont now hosts plenty of opportunity for a variety of activities to fill a morning; coffee, play, some light exercise, a longer walk or ride. Itís perfect for locals, but also worth a trip from those further afield.
