Talaskia Reserve, Upper Ferntree Gully

By Melissa Meehan

It’s right in the heart of the Angliss medical precinct, but you’d be forgiven for not realising what a gem of a playground Talaskia Reserve is.The Upper Ferntree Gully playground is smack bang between the Angliss Hospital, a large oval and an open area that is perfect for basketball, or riding your bike or scooter.

The “basketball court”, beside the playground, has so many different lines on it – I’m sure some of the parents would be sent back to the days when they fought to win Four Square championships.

With two slides,  two swings, seesaws and a cool scooter track next door – it’s a great park for everyone! It’s even toddler friendly.

TIP: It’s next to Angliss Hospital and a primary school – so parking could be an issue some days. But we had no issues but around drop off and pick up it could be a little busy.
