The City of Wanneroo’s Opportunity Playspace at Rotary Park is the perfect place for families to have fun.
The playground has such an array of play equipment and it’s designed in a way that I haven’t seen anywhere else.
The focal piece of the playground is a large play structure that contains 4 slides, a climbing wall, fireman’s pole, climbing nets, cubby house, a tree top walk and stairs to here there and everywhere. It’s great as the whole cubby house aspect encourages imaginative play.
The double slide. Be careful with little people on the slide as they do come down it quite fast and land with a bump!
The Climbing Wall
At the top of the curly wurly slide.
Little people always seem to have lots fun going up and down the stairs. It’s great for adults too as you can easily accompany little people as they make their way around the play structure.
A Cubby House area.
Elevated walkway onto the climbing frame structure. Great for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Liberty swing for wheelchair users.
Swing area, both soft fall and sand based. Behind you can see where the fence isn’t gated and opens out directly onto the car park so you do have to keep a close eye on the kids when they are in this area of the park.
Spinning wheel – great fun!
Spinning teacup. This is a favourite of Miss 4’s, she said she’d like to stay on there forever!
Bouncy seesaw. Perfect for little people.
Obstacle course plus spider net.
Sand play area.
I love the picnic shelters here as they are fabulous for holding a gathering. Not only do you get a large shelter area with a picnic table and BBQ’s but also a table perfect for laying food out on. Unfortunately, you can’t pre-book the shelters so you need to get there early on the day to grab one. There are only three and they are very popular. There is also a large grassy area within the fence boundaries which is perfect for ball games.
The Playspace has been constructed using recycled materials. Look out for the old pylons that were once part of an old jetty in South Perth, the rubber softfall surfacing is made from recycled tyres and all jarrah seating is recovered building materials from old homes.
