Russell Street Park is a new ninja warrior style park that just opened in the heart Morley. If you’ve got older kids who love to run, jump and climb, this park is made for them!
Set up in a nature play style and surrounded by native trees, Russell Street Park is like a big obstacle course. The course is made up of a hard packed gravel path with around ten stations to get through.
This currently features climbing walls, balance beams and logs, a rotating balance beam, a slack rope and a cliffhanger wall. There are also a couple of sets of monkey bars in different styles, as well as double flying fox bars to propel across.
Apart from rocks and huge logs to climb and balance on, there isn’t much available for littler kids. Older kids aged from around 10 and upwards would get the most out of this park. Miss almost Four enjoyed climbing the logs and rocks, the ladder for the cliffhanger and trying out the rotating balance beam. But that was about it. Adventurous kids who have an interest in parkour or who enjoyed watching Ninja Warrior would enjoy it much much more.
Whilst we were checking this park out, there were some fit young adults giving the park a test run too. They seemed to be enjoying doing time trials against each other. So this would be another way to make great use of the equipment. Racing to see has the best time doing the circuit.
The logs and rocks dotted around the park are available for seating, and the park also features solar lighting, so could be used well after into the evening after school.
What was once an ugly closed-off drainage site has been transformed into a fantastic public space to encourage young people to get active and enjoy healthier lifestyles. This has been a joint venture between City of Bayswater and Water Corporation, who have future plans to rejuvenate the neighbouring waterway into an active stream as well.
In keeping with being an area for getting active, there isn’t a lot in the way of parking options here unless you park at Bunnings. Russell Street Park is however located opposite the Morley Bus Station, making public transport a convenient option. There’s also a bike rack available for kids who’d prefer to ride there.
