Kids just love a skate park, though some of the larger spots can be teeming with older and faster kids. The brilliant Madox Playground and Pumptrack in Forrestdale has a smaller bowl than you’d usually find at a skate park – perfect for beginners – as well as a great little playground. The playground features a rope climbing frame, scooter/bike track, a sand fall toddler play area, as well as really unique features like a foosball table, painted balancing logs and a treasure hunt.
Anything with wheels – scooters, bikes and even skateboards are a must at Madox. There’s a concrete bike path that loops the play area and bowl, with street signs and colourful zebra crossings. The small bowl/pump track is perfect for kids that are keen to hone their skills before trying a full sized skating bowl.
There’s a handy repair station with tools to fix bikes and scooters next to the track too.
A tall rope climbing frame is guaranteed to keep climbers entertained.
There are quite a few interactive games here, like a foosball table. Be sure to bring along a small ball to use. I recon something a little smaller than a ping pong ball would be about the right size?
There’s a fun ball-skill game to at Madox Playground and Pumptrack in Forresdale.
As well as traditional hopscotch and foursquare.
For little ones, a sand fall area has plenty of room to dig and play. The shaded area has play equipment low to the ground, as well as a see saw.
We also had a mini treasure hunt. There’s birds, butterflies, lizards and even a treasure chest to find!
It’s a simple feature, and kept Little Chef amused for some time, trying to locate all the hidden items around the playground.
Facilities in the park include a picnic shelter, with tables and seating, as well as a water fountain. There’s not a lot of parking, only street parking. There are no toilets either, the closest would be found at Stockland Harrisdale Shopping Centre, a 4 minute drive away.
It looks as though there’s a big grassed oval opening up directly over the road too. Be sure to head to colourful Madox Playground and Pumptrack in Forrestdale with your little bikers – it’s a brilliant park!
