Just in time for school holidays we managed a sneak peek of this newly developed nature playground.
The Marion council have done a great job of this space which sits adjacent to the Scouts Association.

The nature based area is a fabulous spot for toddlers and young kids to run around and be creative with this awesome little sensory play area. Featuring a sand play and water play area along with natural logs and lots of little areas for the little ones to explore and get lost in their own world of imaginative play.

My favourite is the slippery dip that has the rock climb mound you need to make your way to the top of  to get down the slide. ( the little ones will be exhausted from the climb) bravo I hear you all say.

Also featured is a spinning top and as we were a tad excited about seeing this new awesome play area, the basket swing still needs to be hung. Appears that will be done in the next few days but we just couldn’t wait to share this one with you.

The area has a car park along with a enclosed fence on 1 side of the playground but is open on the Alison St side with an array of trees and shrubs. The sand play area is under shade cloth and the picnic table and BBQ area is protected by a new shelter. Once the trees continue to grow this playground will receive even more shade. Unfortunately no toilets .

In need of a coffee there a few little close coffee shops nearby. Sublime Coffee on Bray St , Once and Again Book Café on Marion Road.

A lovely nature play area the kids will love exploring.

Well done Marion council.
