AL Vincent Playground in Vincent Reserve, Bridgewater is one of those hidden local gems that most people would never know about unless you lived nearby, but it’s a superb spot with a reasonable range of play equipment for toddlers to older kids. It’s well shaded by big gum trees for plenty of shelter on sunny days, fully fenced and bark chipped around all equipment for safer falls. There is a larger play equipment setting suitable for 5-10 years that includes monkey bars, climbing equipment, sliding frames, a bridge and slide. Slightly off from that, there is a more toddler suitable frame with smaller slide, toddler friendly stairs, abacus, covered fort and a spring rocker. There’s also baby and regular swings, as well as a few picnic tables across the reserve and plenty of space for unstructured outdoors play, both in open grassed areas and between the trees.
At time of writing there were no toilet or bbq facilities onsite at Vincent Reserve playground Bridgewater. The playground is a no-dog zone.
Open all hours.
Best Suits: 1-10 year olds
