From the City of Armadale Website:

    The installation of a new playground area has been approved for Champion Lakes Beach, off Henley Drive in Champion Lakes. In addition to a new shelter which was recently installed, proposed play equipment includes an embankment slide, triple swing, wooden boat and talking tubes.

    There is ample parking. The last few times we have visited we were unable to locate a toilet, the closest would be at the nearby shopping centre or you could possibly try your luck at the regatta centre which you can get to by bike or car. Joe Saunders Park, Champion Lakes
