Spring Reserve in Guildford has a small but action packed playground and we just love all the indigenous features.
Spring Reserve is a place of significance for local Aboriginal people, having once served as a source of fresh water.
Lance Chadd, a Bibbulmun Nyoongar/Budimia Yamatji Aboriginal artist to worked on the playground which tells the ancient Nyoongar story of Koolbardi the magpie and Kaarda a huge Racehorse Goanna.
The playground is dominated by the beautiful Kaarda goanna, which is built into the bank, another well-known dreamtime animal kids may notice is the rainbow serpent, which snakes its way around the border of the play area.
The sand fall play area features a climbing structure, as well as a little water play.
Be the king of the castle on the platform – there’s climbing nets, a rope bridge, mini rock wall, tunnel, fireman’s pole and more to keep kids entertained.
Stepping logs feature a fun lesson in Nyoongar language. With Nyoongar words and their English meaning painted onto them.
Scramble up the rocks to slide back down the short concrete slope – wide enough for a friend or two!
You’ll also find a nest swing, which is where Koolbardi the magpie is keeping watch.
And when I mentioned there’s a little water play – I did mean little. A tap splashes water onto a sandy area to make a stream where little kids may like to use the damp sand to make a mud pie or have a paddle.
Facilities include a covered area with a table and benches, sheltered from rain and sun, as well as a few benches around the park. There are public toilets on site too.
The park is just a block back from Alfred’s Kitchen, so perfect for a play after feasting on a delicious burger! Spring Reserve in Guildford is a fab little park. There’s plenty of space to kick a ball and loads to keep children of all ages active and entertained. Head there today and learn a little about the area’s rich aboriginal culture.
