Where: The Parade, Kensington Park

With a recent development (Opened September 2020) of the existing playground, this has been transformed into such a beautiful toddler playground. Nature play is the theme here with the playground sitting nicely with the local scenery, but the trade off for this is it probably is only a playground for the up to 5 years crowd.

There is shade, toilets, a water fountain and tables, but it isn’t fully fenced which isn’t too much of an issue as the road side is fenced. The nearby Kensington Oval was in immaculate condition when we visited (no doubt it always is!) so feel free to bring a ball or frisbee to have a muck around. Parking isn’t too bad either, so we just parked on The Parade next to the oval.

There is a reasonable amount of play equipment, with swings, balancing logs, and a small tower and slide which will keep the young ones happy enough. Coffee wise (always the most important playground feature!), it is on The Parade….you could pick anywhere and it will be good!
