Maylands Waterland

Maylands Waterland is back!

Maylands Waterland

This water playground has been a popular family activity since the 70s but with ageing infrastructure, it has been closed to the public for a much-needed renovation.

Maylands Waterland

The City of Bayswater engaged with Josh Burns Associates to design and build an all-abilities accessible aquatic play space that was inspired by the local native flora and fauna of the Swan River.

We were so excited to get a sneak peek of what this playspace had to offer and all I can say is that we are ready for warmer weather!!

There are two nature-play playgrounds that your kids can pick from but each one has been designed to cater for younger or older children.

Native flora such as river reeds and fauna (lizards, frogs and spiders) are woven throughout the design where kids will have so much fun climbing, hanging, hopping and making a racket with.

As for the waterplay space, there will be a splash pad that includes sprinkler jets, a waterfall and tip buckets. There will also be a shallow wading pool that I can see being popular with everyone!

In terms of facilities, this is probably one of the best facilities I have come across.  Everyone will love the outdoor shower that includes a historical nod to the old pool and large change facilities (note: with warm water showers!)

In the middle is a great viewing deck that will include seating and I can imagine serves as a great vantage point when searching for your kids.

There are several bbq facilities and picnic areas for gatherings as well as a designated space for food trucks.  The best part I can see being well utilised is the kitchen and picnic table area.  You will be able to pre-book this area for all your future parties!

One thing to note is that it wasn’t clear if there was a lot of parking available and this will prove to be an issue during popular times.

Stage one of Maylands Waterland is free to the public and gates open 1st of July.  The waterplay elements are set to run this September school holidays (so I suggest you mark your calendars).  

There is no doubt that this will be a Summer hotspot for everyone to enjoy.
