Lawler Park is a green, leafy park in Floreat with a playground suitable for toddlers and upwards. There are lots of play opportunities here to keep the kids busy.
The larger playground structure includes two slides of different sizes, ring-shaped monkey bars, swinging platforms to climb across, some climbing ropes, and a tricky balancing beam with vertical bars to up the difficulty level. It has a miniature climbing wall on one side and a clock for practising setting the time.
Miss almost 3 particularly enjoyed the balancing beam.
Standing separately, there is a train shaped spring rocker, a spinning pole, and a spring-based seesaw. There are also two swings, a toddler swing and a regular swing.
For bigger kids, there is a cube of climbing ropes and a climbing wall. Ropes go right across the top for climbing or swinging across. Just because I think it’s for bigger kids, that didn’t stop my little Miss from testing it out!
The play equipment is covered with shade sails and also naturally shaded by a tree. The ground around it is a mix of sand and rubber soft-fall which winds through the sand like a path. Soft-fall is also the base under the swings.
Lawler Park has Lots of grassy, open space, and at one end of the park is a set of goal posts and a basketball hoop behind the nearby hall. Great for practising ball skills or running with the family dog.
Not far from the playground there are a couple of park benches, and a barbecue is also available. Handy for family get-togethers or casual birthday parties.
Lawler Park is located on Draper Street, between Underwood Avenue and Kirwan Street in Floreat. A small amount of street parking is available, or there is free parking in the car park near the scout hall.
