A fantastic new playground has been developed along side the new Cockburn ARC rec centre over looking a lovely wetland area.

One side of the playground features a large rope spiderweb.  To get to the other side of the playground you need to journey through the tunnel, climb up the rocks or on the wooden stepping logs to go down the double tunnel slide.

The main feature of the playground is a large climbing obstacle course presenting different challenges on all sides. This is great for the older kids! 

In the centre you climb up to the top to take in the lovely views of the wetlands towards the new Cockburn ARC.

There is a birds nest swing.

And quite a large climbing wall that was a huge hit with my girls.

There are many nature play features such as wobble logs, balancing beams, a wobbly bridge and a very large green snake winds it way through the native gardens.

The playgrounds features wide ramps for all abilities access, free BBQs, shaded seating and drinking fountain. 

Paths follow around the wetlands, so pack the bikes & scooters as well as some balls to enjoy the grass areas.

The nearest public toilets would be at the Cockburn Central Train station, where you also find a number of eateries & cafes to enjoy after a play if you didn’t plan on a picnic of BBQ.
