  • Find it at: Malwa Street, Glandore The fabulous playground at the Glandore Community Centre is now open and we think it looks sensational! The highlight of course is the huge 'birdcage' climbing structure which leads into a great tube slide, which is big enough to keep the older kids entertained but also is just right for the brave younger ones to try. There is a 3 on 3 basketball court, and a table tennis table plus plenty of lawned area's including a mini soccer pitch (perfect spot to pack the car with ALL the balls). We loved the little pump track for the smaller crew to ride and scoot around, plus the artwork scattered around adds a really nice touch to a very well put together facility for the community.

It's just $45 per head for adults, $12 for under 7's and $20 for under 15's. Their attentive and friendly staff will just keep bringing pizzas until you tell them to stop!

After our most recent visit, we have some new favourite pizzas - the pear and blue cheese pizza is to die for and the…
