Lake Monger is now home to an exciting new adventure playground! The playground has been specifically designed for children over the age of 5 who love a challenge!
Arriving at the playground, my 5 year old couldn’t wait to tackle the ninja rope obstacle course, or as he called it the Roblox obby. But lucky this obby means ditching the screens and playing in the real world! The rope obstacle course is definitely a challenge and a great way to develop and enhance strength and balance and conquer fears as well.
The kids love zipping down the 25-metre double flying fox towards Lake Monger!
Sliding down the embanked bump wave slide, which also adds a nice pop of colour to the playground nature-based playground.
And getting a little wet at the unique water play space.
Other features at the playground include basket swings, a roundabout and a concrete slide.
The playground has a beautiful natural flare and has used recycled timbers such as old western power poles cut off on an angel to symbolise spears, paying tribute to the indigenous heritage of Lake Monger. The surrounding turf mounds is also shaped to represent a serpent embracing the play space to celebrate the WAGYL Dreamtime story for Lake Monger.
Given Lake Monger already has two toddler-friendly playgrounds, I love that a space has been created for older children to enjoy. I also love that the space encourages parents to be up and engaging with their kids instead of just sitting on the sidelines watching… the kids shouldn’t be the ones to be having all the fun!
Anchor points have been installed for shade sails in summer. The playground isn’t fully fenced, but there is a 135-metre section of barrier fencing along Lake Monger Drive.
There is a basketball hoop and adult exercise equipment near the playground. Lake Monger is also a fantastic destination for a family walk, so make sure you bring your walking shoes, bike or scooter.
