Where: Myzantha Street, Lockleys
The much anticipated new addition to Mellor Park Lockleys has opened, perfectly timed for kids in the west to enjoy some new play for summer. This one is geared towards capable climbers and kids big enough to climb onto a platform for the flying fox. Now, we love us a flying fox and this one has potential but City of West Torrens can you speed it up a bit? Does it have breaks on? Or does it just need our kids to ride it seventy three trillion times to break it in? Not sure but he SLOW.
Featuring new toilets, BBQs and seating plus an abundance of green grass and large shade trees, we are adding this to or bigger kids playgrounds and party park category ASAP. Located on busy henley beach Rd and with no fencing (but a generous 100m dash zone before hitting the traffic we guess…..) you need to watch the runners. While this new fancy space is majority geared to those who are school aged and above, across the park in close proximity is an older style fully fenced toddler play area. It’s a bit outdated, but still brilliant.
You’ll also find a basketball hoop (not height adjustable – boo) and a free tennis court here.Our dog loved eating the fresh soft bark chips more than our Nan enjoyed walking over them, but there is a nice little concrete path around the park she was able to circumnavigate the kids playing on. Look out for the balance bikes tho Nan! Bring a picnic rug and a kite, it’s a beautiful green space.
