Popular playgrounds in and around town

Guy Turner Reserve in Bayswater has a completely covered sandpit which makes it an all weather playground. We call it the Hungry Caterpillar Park because it has a caterpillar along the sandpit. Has a great playground too.

Our masks are off (outside), playgrounds are open and the sun is shining.

Summer is the perfect time to get outside – even more so after Melbourne’s epic lockdown.
