    Fancote Park is located behind Stargate Shops in Kelmscott. As we drove past the big forte caught our eye so we stopped for a look and a play.
    Fancote Park KelmscottThe park has wide open grassed spaces for ball games or running around, sand-based playground, exercise equipment and the forte. The park is also equipped with a covered BBQ, picnic tables and benches around the play equipment. There is a drinking fountain near the picnic tables. The park has lovely mature trees which provide some shade for the picnic tables and exercise equipment. There is a fence between the park and the bushland.

    There are two small exercise stations, each with about four different exercise machines. Even though these aren’t technically play equipment my daughter always loves to try them out and see what the equipment does. These are located close to the road.

    The fort is perfect for little imaginations and games. I was a little wary of what I might find inside the forte but the day I visited it was very clean. There are steps on either side of the entrance and a viewing walkway that goes all the way around. The ground level is clear around the tower. My daughter and another girl that was in the park played chase in the fort for a little while.

    The playground is sand based and has the main piece of equipment with slide, a rope climbing frame, double swing – one toddler and one normal, horse rocker and a small sand play table. This part of the playground is not shaded.
