Found overlooking the Swan River and Fremantle’s bustling port, is the fantastic Tuckfield Oval playground where you might even spot a rainbow! The newish play area is in East Fremantle, near to the George Street coffee strip, is close to the iconic shipping container “rainbow” too. Just a hop, skip and jump across the road.
The playground features a HUGE rope climbing structure.
My Son headed straight to the large hill!
There’s also a large stripy hill, covered in soft fall and some rock-climbing style holds, for climbing to the top. It’s worth even the adults getting up there to enjoy the spectacular view, just be wary of little climbers!
Tuckfield Oval has a nature play feel, as most of the equipment is wooden and there’s a mix of bark and soft fall surfaces. Older kids will love the obstacle course style rope and wood equipment to jump and swing between. There’s also a small tyre swing on.
The lower end of the playground also has a wooden obstacle course, which is suited to younger children. There are logs and ropes to climb on, a fireman’s pole and a small slide too.
Next to this there is a nature play area with stepping and balancing logs and small pathways to navigate around. Watch out for the wobbly log!
There is a grassed area, with plenty of space to run around or kick a ball.
Facilities include water fountains.
There are also a couple of shaded picnic tables and a BBQ.
Tuckfield Oval would be great spot for a picnic, though not on a very hot, sunny day. Sadly there’s very little shade. Be sure to take the kids along to the brilliant playground and that amazing view!
