    Occupying a beautiful spot along the banks of the Swan River, Bardon Park in Maylands is a great spot to play!

    There are two playgrounds located at Bardon Park. The first, closest to the car park, is relatively new and contains some unique play equipment and a focus on nature play.

    You’ll find a birds nest swing.

    A net bridge

    A couple of balancing beams.

    An unusual roundabout.

    An arched climbing frame.

    A musical area.

    A very cool flying fox which provided Miss 4 with endless fun!

    And resident wildlife in the shape of these two snails and two tortoises.

    There is a water feature but it wasn’t working at the time of our visit.

    Down the hill, there is another more traditional play structure with slides and a climbing wall.

    There are also BBQs, picnic shelters and two ExeLoos.

    If you are accompanied by a toddler you will need to keep a close eye on them as there is an area of open water near to the playground.

    If you are heading there for the day you wouldn’t even need to pack a picnic as located in the car park is Annie’s Woodfired Pizza Trailer, serving up a small range of delicious wood-fired pizzas ($16), coffees, cakes and cold drinks. The trailer is there Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 7pm and they even take EFTPOS.

    Bring along your scooters or bikes and enjoy a ride along the bicycle tracks by the Swan River. There is also plenty of grassy space to enjoy a ball game and Bardon Park is a great place for a spot of fishing.

    Bardon Park is located off 4th Avenue, Maylands. There is ample parking available.
