The new playground has retained the flight theme of the original playground and was built with the input of local residents and designers, including BiGfiSh, who designed the original layout (and ellaslist favourite Mimi the Muttaburrasaurus Park in Yarraville). With a wealth of equipment, it's suitable for all ages for plenty of outdoor fun and challenges.

A popular item in this unique and iconic park is again the giantic traffic control tower, alongside climbable steel aeroplane (check out the swings under the wings! A toddler swing with harness, two standard swings and a nest swing), a tarmac to run along, baggage carousel and even a terminal with seating for you to wait your turn.

Other fun equipment includes slides, rope walks, aeroplane-shaped rockers, ramps, a spinning net, poles, and seats, musical steps to stamp on, and flying foxes.

Alongside the playground, the rebuilt park includes exercise equipment, plenty of green grass to kick a footy on, a scooter and bike track, community garden, and picnic area.

It's a gorgeous, brightly-coloured playground your kids will no doubt have a fabulous time in. Well worth a trip!
