Rossiter Pavilion and Playing Fields in Piara Waters, in the Holland Park Estate, boasts a small playground packed with natureplay and adventure for curious, energetic kids.
The first part to grab Miss 4’s attention was the three in-ground trampolines in the middle of the playground. She bolted straight to these first off, and came back to them many times over the course of our visit. She even managed to get me on one once or twice!
On walking into the playground, the first thing I spotted was the nature play and messy play items. To the left, we found balancing logs of varying heights, and a wooden tent for imaginative play. To the right, a sand table and a mud kitchen do messy, sensory play. The mud kitchen was another big hit with Miss 4 with her coming back again and again to load it up with handfuls of sand and pretend to cook. We found a cookie cutter someone had dropped in the gardens, and she spent ages pretending she was making biscuits.
The big eye catcher you can see from the road is the main wooden climbing frame. This features a ramps, a double slide, a climbing wall, a rope bridge, and a fireman pole.
Attached to this main structure are swings. There’s one for everyone – a toddler swing, a regular swing and an all abilities swing with a safety belt.
Further down the playground, closer to the playing fields, we found two more slides made of concrete. These drop into a small sandpit and have recycled railway sleepers built into steps between them. Miss 4 enjoyed climbing up and down, and mixed it up with climbing the rocks alongside.
The playground at Rossiter Pavilion includes a great outdoor entertaining area with a barbecue and three picnic tables. A fourth covers picnic table is across the field. These would be perfect for casual birthday parties or family get togethers. If you’re planning a bigger event or it’s a time of year where you’re not sure if you can trust the weather, the Pavilion also has rooms for hire through City of Armadale. These include a stove, electric oven, fridge and microwave.

Rossiter Pavilion has a number of toilets available, but the majority appear to be locked unless an event is on. There is one open however as a public toilet from 6am to 6pm, which has a disabled toilet, shower and a baby change table.
As well as being a fun place for humans to hang out, furry family members will enjoy it too. There is lots of grassy area to run and catch a ball with the kids, and a water fountain for humans and dogs is available just by the pavilion. We saw a few people out exercising their dogs on the field whilst we played.
All in all we spent about an hour here, and Miss 4 was never bored. There is lots to keep energetic little ones busy.
Most of the play area is covered by shade sails, which I loved, and there are trees surrounding also that will eventually add more shade.
