Tucked away in a suburban area of Joondalup (not far from the Candlewood Shopping Centre) is Windermere Park. The little gem of a park has enough play equipment to keep kids busy for a while! The playground is small, but a lot is packed into it, with traditional play and a little nature play too. The main sand-fall playground is shaded in the late afternoon by mature trees and found close to the club rooms.
This fort-like play structure is fantastic for kindy/primary school aged children, as there are lots of things to climb on.
There’s a steering wheel, ladder, climbing wall, climbing ropes, and a fireman’s pole.
There’s also a set of swings. One regular swing and a swing for a baby/toddler.
The wood-chipped nature play area features balancing logs, stepping logs and a wigwam shaped structure, which I guess could be used for making a cubby? Lots of large boulders are also handy for climbing over and kids will love the big blue slide too.
There is a sheltered seating area next to the playground. Toilets are found at the club rooms, but they are not open at all times. You’ll also find a basketball half-court. Little Chef enjoyed this a lot!
Dogs are allowed in the park, as long as they’re on a leash. I took our pup for a couple of laps of the oval, while the boys were playing basketball.
There is a very large grassed oval area, with heaps of space to run around, fly a kite or kick a footy.
Windermere Park is a brilliant park for a play without the crowds.
Windermere Park is found at the north end of Candlewood Boulevard, Joondalup.
