Hooray! The playground is finally updated! And let Mamma tell you - it was sure worth the wait!
What was already one of the best treasures in Frankston, has now been upgraded with an awesome new playground. It includes equipment Mamma has never seen before (which is some feat considering how many parks the crew have visited!)
For example, one of the highlights for Mr tree-climber was a set of different sized ropes which are bolted into the ground and threaded throughout the huge climbing trees. Such a simple thing, yet a great tool for hours of imaginative play!
The other faves were the 6 person rope swing, the incredible tree house complete with twisty slide dismount, the net standing see-saw and the inclusive carousel.
Of course, there are the usual - swings, slides, rocking horses (bees), sandpit and large statues of spiders and crocodiles.
The gardens themselves are a hidden oasis in the middle of Frankston - with plenty of space for kids to run around and explore - kick the footy - even a game of cricket! Read more about George Pentland Botanical Gardens here.
Pack your picnic basket and prepare to spend a few hours enjoying this beautiful spot.
Mamma's special mention:
Feel like a sweet treat? Head down the road to the decadent Twisted Sister!
