Playground: Wellesley Road Reserve, Glen Waverley

We love a fenced playground

By Melissa Meehan

Wellesley Road Playspace ticks a lot of boxes.

But most importantly of all – it’s fully fenced. Which is always good when you’ve got a more adventurous older child and a crazy younger one who will jump and run wherever possible.

It has the most fabulous sensory garden, swings, a slide, a ‘spiders web’ and a spinny thingy (that is currently out of order). It’s also got some green open space where you could have a picnic or take a ball to play with.

My favourite thing had to be what looks like a hand-carved chess table and chairs – the kids were drawn to it too.
