Bridgetown Memorial Park – Review

Bridgetown Memorial Park – Review

If you’re looking for a new park experience, then this is the park for you!  Beautiful Bridgetown is not that far from Bunbury, just 90 kms in fact!  We recently had a family getaway in Balingup, and we took a day to head into Bridgetown and explore the beautiful parks and playgrounds in the town.

By far the best park in Bridgetown is Memorial Park, situated on the main street and close to coffee shops and cafes!  Perhaps our favourite thing about this playground is that it’s fenced!  This is such a relief if you have a runner, or even just multiple kids and you want to relax, knowing that you’re not having to chase them down the street.

We loved that there was so much on offer at this playground – it’s the kind of place you could take the picnic basket and spend the whole morning – wearing the kids out, ready for a nap or rest time when you get home.

The playground is well maintained and very colourful, making it inviting for kids of all ages.  We loved that there were separate areas catering for different ages and stages, meaning that it would suit large groups, or families with children of different ages.

There are toilets available in the park.

You can see some of our favourite parts of the park here:

Park Review South West Mums

SWM Chief Park Reviewers

 

Meet your Chief Park Reviewers!  Haze is 4 and loves to climb as high as he can and always finds a way to climb up the slide rather than down it.  His favourite playground equipment is the swing.  Tex is 16 months and he loves to swing, slide and give mummy a heart attack by attempting to fly off unguarded platforms.  They tell me they have the best job in the world!

Gascoyne Park – Millbridge Private Estate

Gascoyne Park – Millbridge Private Estate

The boys and I were in Millbridge last week and we came across this gorgeous little play area (Gascoyne Park) that I just have to share!  Now, it is quite small, so not suitable for large groups, but great for a little play with a few children.

Gascoyne Park features two areas.  There’s a grassed area with a bbq (perfect for that summer afternoon get together) and then there’s a little playground comprising of a sandpit and some great imaginative equipment.  You can see all the fun in the photos below.

We even saw some South West Rocks!  So it would be a great place to take your rocks to hide and seek – lots of little hidey places.

no smiles … I’m staring at my rock!

One of the things we loved was that after we were finished playing in the sand, we were able to head down the steps and go for a nature walk along the paths that run along the back of the houses.  We even walked up to Cadell Park.

We saw a little creek which the boys were so fascinated with, as well as some beautiful mushrooms growing out of the trees and lots of birds.  Haze thought it was perfect fairy hunting weather and we were able to have lots of imaginative play looking for fairies as we strolled along.  My 18 month old could walk along the path but it was easier to wear him.

There are no toilets here as it is a small play area, so the closest public toilets would be Cadell Park.  There is also only room for 4 cars to park on the roadside (and they are often taken up by residents), so it’s definitely not a group play area, but you could also park at Cadell Park and walk along the footpath to get there.

This little playground is located on Gascoyne Circle in Millbridge Private Estate.

Riflebutts Reserve – Prevelly Beach Margaret River

Riflebutts Reserve – Prevelly Beach Margaret River

Riflebutts Reserve – Prevelly Beach, Margaret River
Surfers Point Road, Prevelly

This park is nothing short of spectacular!  Nestled in the beautiful beaches of Prevelly, it has so many little features to delight and amaze big and small kids alike!  It would certainly be easy to drive past this one and not even notice!

There’s plenty of room to kick a ball, have a bbq or picnic and just hang out and relax.

A lovely little playground for the kids with softfall base, a slide, lots of climbing equipment.  The actual playground is more suited to older kids (3 plus), however the park is suitable for all ages as there’s many other things for the little ones to explore.

There are plenty of paths for scooters, steps to climb, walkways to explore, grass to roll on or kick a ball.  You really could spend the whole morning here.

It is quite a windy spot so it may not be the best winter park, but you can be sure it is THE place to take the family in spring, summer and autumn.  It is quite protected though.

You can access the park from the walk way at the top of the hill, however it’s a pretty steep walk, so would suit older children or kids in a carrier.  And it’s not the getting down, it’s the getting back up!  You can also access the park from the other side, which might be easier with smaller kids.  When we found this one, I walked down from the top of the road, which was a beautiful way to take in the beaches.

Best features – we loved the uniqueness of this park in Prevelly and the statues were lots of fun to pose with and take some funny photos for the memory books.

Negatives – it can be hard to get to, so pack light.

Dunsborough Playing Fields – Playgrounds

Dunsborough Playing Fields – Playgrounds

Dunsborough Playing Fields
Dunsborough Lakes Drive, Dunsborough

In addition to the fantastic Skate Park, Dunsborough Fields is also home to two great little playgrounds.  One is fully fenced and secure and one is fenced on the road side, with the oval side open.

Small Fenced Playground

There is a little playground at the end of the carpark which is fully fenced and has a small picnic table next to it too.  It is perfect for younger kids … and kids who love to run!  Or Mums who just want some peace of mind when they take a few seconds to look down at their phone.  The playground is lower to the ground than ones aimed at older kids, so my 18 month old found it easier to manoeuvre.  But my 4 year old still enjoyed it, even though he wanted to get out of the fence quicker.

The playground is sand based.  I’m not a fan of getting sand in absolutely everything, but I must admit that my boys do love the sand based playgrounds, it is definitely another activity for them to engage in.

Fenced playground at Dunsborough Playing Fields, close to the skate park and larger open park on the Dunsborough ovals.

If you’re looking for other fenced playgrounds in our South West, check out our list here.

Main Playground

The main playground is fenced on the car park side, but opens out onto the main oval.  The playground is wood chip based and features quite a lot of climbing based equipment, as well as a double slide.

It is unshaded through the winter months, which is great on those colder days where some sunshine is necessary to warm the bones.

There is a great path for kids to use their scooters.  And the oval is a plus as if it’s not being used for sport, it’s a great place for Mums to sit and have a coffee and for a picnic too!

Large playground at Dunsborough Playing Fields including fenced playground and skate park.

Dunsborough Skate Park

Dunsborough Playing Fields is also home to a fantastic Skate Park!

It features quite a deep bowl and plenty of banks and quarters.  It caters for all levels of skating expertise.

Plenty of seating available around the park, easy parking and toilets close by (yes Mums, this one is a winner!).  I was also able to navigate the pram around the park really easily.

Skate Parks – Best Skate Parks in the South West

Skate Parks – Best Skate Parks in the South West

Do you have an aspiring Skateboarder?  Or maybe you have younger kids who like to take their scooter for a spin on an easier skate park?  We’ve put together a list of the best Skate Parks in our beautiful South West!

You can see exactly what they’re like before you choose the best ones for your kids based on their age and skill levels (and their proximity to coffee).  It’s ok Mummas, we’ve done all the hard work for you!  Enjoy exploring our beautiful region with your kids.

Collie Skate Park

If you haven’t check out Collie Skate Park yet, you must!  What a beautiful space for children of all ages!  Situated next to Soldiers Park (which is a fantastic playground) there are toilets accessible from both facilities and plenty of parking.

The 730m2 facility both amplifies and adds further value to the Collie River Precinct whilst creating a central social and recreational hub for the community. The design of the skate park incorporates a tight bowl, a number of transition elements and the inclusion of several technical street features; a stand out being a kicker to kicker gap over the dry creek bed.

Location – 10 Lefroy Street Collie
Toilets – YES!

Bunbury Skate Park

Located opposite Centrepoint Shopping Centre in Queens Gardens, Bunbury Skate Park offers a variety of street features, banks, quarters and bowls.

It’s totally suited to younger kids on scooters, as well as experienced skaters and everyone in between.

There is a little water behind this skate park with some little duckies swimming around (only mentioning this in case you have a younger toddler where you need to be aware of unfenced water).

The bonus for this one is close proximity to coffee!  Yes Mummas, we’ve got your back!

Parking for Bunbury Skate Park is in the Queens Gardens Carpark.  There is also a playground accessible from the same carpark – you’ll find it here.

Location – Queens Park Gardens (opposite Centrepoint Shopping Centre) vehicle access from Cobblestone Drive.
Toilets – no

Plenty of seating available around the park, easy parking and toilets close by (yes Mums, this one is a winner!).  I was also able to navigate the pram around the park really easily.

A great course for all levels of experience.

Busselton Skate Park

Situated on Busselton’s historic foreshore, the Busselton Skate Park is sure to impress!  This awesome park features two bowls and four interconnected street areas, providing a range of difficultly and challenges for both novice and experienced skaters (or scooters) alike.

While we were reviewing the park, we saw younger children using bikes and scooters, older experienced skaters – even a Dad learning to skate alongside his bike riding toddler.  So it definitely caters for all levels.

Busselton Skate Park is proudly home to WA’s deepest bowl at 3m deep.

The skate park features plenty of seating areas for spectators, easy parking and lockers.  We loved that there were historic features from the old Busselton Jetty sewn into the overall design, as well as landscaped areas to break up the vast concrete.

Location – On the Busselton Foreshore near the Busselton Jetty.
Toilets – not at the actual park, closest would be at the park further down the foreshore.

Donnybrook Skate Park

Located close to the town centre in Egan Park (right opposite the Apple Fun Park), Donnybrook Skate Park was built in 2014 and offers a great experience for both experienced and novice skaters.  With plenty of seating for spectators, this smooth concrete skate park is definitely one worth a visit.

This compact park is definitely suitable for a younger child with a scooter, but also for older skaters or scooters too.  It can get a little overcrowded on weekends, so little ones can get a little overwhelmed.

Location – Egan Park opposite the Apple Fun Park
Toilets – no, closest would be inside the Apple Fun Park.

Donnybrook Skate Park

Cowaramup Skate Park

Yes!  There is a really cool skate park in Cowaramup!  It’s fairly small, however, it is definitely a little gem!  It is suitable for younger and older kids and combines a range of challenges and levels in one compact park.

The skatepark features a decent bowl, ledges around the outside and a little quarter!

Cowaramup Skate Park is suitable for little ones on a scooter, as well as older experienced skaters.

A little bonus with this park if you have younger kids, is that it is right next to a great little playground.  It has picnic table, bbqs and plenty of lawn too.  Really easy parking.  And clean toilets (winning!).

Location – Behind the tennis courts on Bussell Highway, Cowaramup.
Toilets – yes!  Located close to the skate park next to the playground.

Cowaramup Skate Park

A great compact skate park with challenges for all levels.

Margaret River Skate Park

Margaret River Skate Park is a concrete street course located just outside the town centre.  The park features a half pipe with extension, a bowl, wave ramp, ¼ pipe, fun box and numerous roll-ins and hips.

This park is also lit with good lighting on some week nights.

Location – Wallcliffe Road (next to the Shire offices) in the Zone.
Toilets – yes

Margaret River Skate Park

Eaton Skate Park

A compact, concrete skate park.  It’s a fairly small park with street features suited to a younger, more inexperienced level of skating or scooting.

Location – On Council Drive in Eaton, opposite Eaton Fair Shopping Centre
Toilets – No, closest would be inside the shopping centre.

Eaton Skate Park

Australind Skate Park

Australind Skate Park is now complete and will have it’s grand opening on 29th July.  You can find all the details here.  We’ll update our review when it’s officially open!  But here’s a sneak peak of what it looks like – absolutely world class!

Australind Skate Park Official Opening

Other Skate Parks

We know there are other skate parks in the region, but after visiting them all, this is our pick of the best ones.  Some of the skate parks we have left out of this list have prefabricated ramps placed onto a concrete or bitchumen surface, whereas we have concentrated on concrete skate parks as we find they are more popular with scooters and skaters alike.

Think we’ve missed a cracker skate park that you feel should have made the list?  Make sure you let us know here.

 

Pioneer Park – Cowaramup

Pioneer Park – Cowaramup

Pioneer Park
Bussell Highway, Cowaramup

This park is a beautiful little oasis in an already gorgeous little town.  It’s a park made possible by the local Lions Club.

The actual playground is tiny and is made up of a large circular swing and rotunda.  But the playground is surrounded by loads of lush green grass, a little rocky creek and lots of natural areas for children to use their imaginations.

As it’s in the town centre, it’s easy to grab a snack or coffee and wonder over to Pioneer Park to enjoy it.

With plenty of picnic tables and a bbq, the park is a wonderful spot for a family bbq.

Our boys loved putting a few coins in the wishing well and “patting” the cows too!

The park has toilets – yay!!

Best features – the park is a great natural haven and has so many natural features that your kids will love to explore.

Negatives – the playground is really quite tiny and not the major draw card here.  Definitely not the place to be if you’re looking for a playground to keep the kids occupied for a few hours.  Also, be careful of the magpies (they didn’t swoop at all, but were very friendly and tried to steal our food!).

Park Review South West Mums

SWM Chief Park Reviewers

Meet your Chief Park Reviewers!  Haze is 4 and loves to climb as high as he can and always finds a way to climb up the slide rather than down it.  His favourite playground equipment is the swing.  Tex is 16 months and he loves to swing, slide and give mummy a heart attack by attempting to fly off unguarded platforms.  They tell me they have the best job in the world!

Sykes Reserve – Koombana Bay Bunbury

Sykes Reserve – Koombana Bay Bunbury

Sykes Reserve
Koombana Bay, Bunbury

Sykes Reserve is one of those parks you will wish you had known about sooner!  It has so many great features that your kids will not want to leave!

The playground is sand based and well shaded for the summer months.  There is plenty to do for both younger and older kids and both my 16 month old an 4 year old enjoyed it immensely.

There are plenty of photos below to show you exactly what is on offer – but there are multiple slides, swings, bridges, climbing frames and ropes and a little rocking boat to name a few.

There were families fishing off the nearby jetty and a few boys with a fishing net seeing what they could net from the little beach.  For us the water was a lovely addition, but it certainly meant we had to be extra vigilant.

We have been told by other mums that you can access the toilets at the Power Boat Club – they are not right next to the playground, but walking distance for those emergencies.

The park provides a great area to stop and rest or play while completing the walk around Koombana Bay.

Best Features – We loved that there was so much variety – the boys enjoyed the playground, my husband and I loved the gym equipment and the view!  There’s definitely something here for everyone.

Negatives – the birds were a bit of a drawback for me – they actually pooed on my laptop while we were there!  But if you don’t sit under the trees, you’ll be fine.  Also, not the best park for runners due to the proximity to the water and jetty.  If you’re looking for our list of fenced playgrounds, you’ll find it here.

Brunswick Mooseum Playground

Brunswick Mooseum Playground

Mooseum Playground – Brunswick
South Western Highway, Brunswick

We drove home a different way today and found a great little playground we’d never been to before.  I’d driven past a few times, but never really taken much notice.  My littlest one was asleep but Mr 4 was desperate to get out and about so we pulled in to have a closer look!

The playground is quite unique and not like a playground I’ve visited before.  It features a rainwater tank that the children can walk through, little “shop fronts” to foster wonderful games of imagination.  A rope maze to keep them entertained.  Little rocking horses and a big red slide.  There are so many wonderful little features to this playground – you can see most of them in the photos below.

The area is fenced, however unfortunately there are no gates – a little strange – hard to tell whether they’ve been taken off, or never installed in the first place?

There is a fairly good sized lawned area next to playground with a table and bbq.  The playground isn’t shaded but there are some shady trees over the picnic area.  The toilets are across the carpark, but still fairly close.

Best Features – the park is unique and will definitely win the kids over on this fact.  It’s quaint and the grassy patch next to the park is a beautiful place to have morning tea and a chat.

Negatives – the playground isn’t securely fenced and it is located on South Western Highway.  It is set back from the road a fair way, but the danger is still there to a degree.

This park is the perfect, secluded little spot to enjoy a morning of play by the water.  Set next to the Australind inlet, it’s a stunning park.

The park features a little Pirate Ship, swings and climbing frames.  The Pirate Ship was a hit with both my boys and they were both able to climb up and enjoy it.  My 4 year old enjoyed the climbing frames, although he found some of them a little wobbly to climb (they are rope based).

The park is sand based and surrounded by grassed areas.  There are toilets but they are a short walk from the actual playground area.

There are many paths surrounding the playground, perfect for bikes and scooters.

Best features – a playground that caters for a wide age range and loads of room for bikes and scooters.
