  • Let the games begin! If your kids love little athletics they’ll absolutely love Pegasus Park in Bennett Springs!!!

    The Olympic themed play space which opened in late February 2018 is completely different from any other playground in Perth, it includes a range of kids’ activities inspired by little athletics, with plenty of space to kick a ball, swing a bat or shoot hoops.

    The first thing we notice was the half-court basketball court, which includes a basketball hoop, netball ring, four square, hopscotch and a target practice wall – the kids couldn’t wait to go and explore.

    On the other side of the basketball court is a cricket pitch with built-in wickets, fielders and scoreboard. While the boys loved playing cricket, the kids were more interested in the fielders ;).

    If the kids haven’t had enough of ball games they can play funnel ball in the little athletics area. To play, toss the ball into the mouth of the funnel and wait for it to exit, each exit hole is marked with a point value.

    Or practice your soccer skills by dribbling the ball through the different rings.

    The 50-metre running track was definitely the highlight for our kids, including the toddlers, who loved running around the track. In addition to the 50-metre track there a 10-metre sprint and long jump.

    Or for something more challenging, they can try hurdles.

    No Olympics is complete without the winners standing proudly onto of the podium!

    In the sand area, there is a concrete tunnel to crawl through, a funky twist on the traditional monkey bars and a soft fall mountain to climb.

    At the top of the fall mountain is a huge double concrete slide, big enough for about 6 kids to slide down at once.

    At the bottom of the slide are 7 in-ground trampolines.

    All pathways are wheelchair friendly. There is a number of picnic shelters and seating options available. The only downside is there are no public toilets or BBQs. If you are hungry Slate Cafe is only around the corner.

    There is no shade, best to plan your visit for early morning or late afternoon. Make sure you bring your balls and a cricket bat.
