BAYSIDE AND GLEN EIRA
Caulfield Park, Caulfield North
With three different playgrounds there is a slide for everyone here. They may not be the biggest, but the sheer variety of slides make this park a place to visit.
The three playgrounds are aimed at different groups, the younger kids, older kids and sensory play all catered for.

Booran Reservoir Playspace, Glen Huntly
Let’s just take a moment to take in exactly how big this super slide is.
Not only do kids have to climb this mammoth super structure just to get to the top but it seems to have all the pieces of a super-fast slide and twirly whirly one – in one.
Only the bravest daredevils could be expected to take on such a challenge – and believe me there were many keen to take it on. This playground has been billed as the best playground in Melbourne and it’s not difficult to see why. It’s huge. It’s got a sandpit, swings and a water pad for the warmer months.

Harleston Park, Elsternwick
A gigantic slide, with steps along the side is the perfect way to while away the spring days. And is sure to tire little legs out. There’s also an area in the sand for the smaller kids with a slide that’s sure to give parents some relief. It’s the perfect spot to find some shade under the tree and take a minute to rest. Or even bring a picnic.
