My kids and I visit a lot of playgrounds… but the brand new Wandi Playing Fields Playground is hands down our favourite playground in Perth (big call right!) – while there is no crazy slide or huge tower, there is lots of different play areas and something for kids of all ages and abilities! We were there for hours (much longer than anticipated) and not once did one of my kids complain they were bored or wanted to go home.
As we arrived my 7 year old ran straight to the 30 meter double flying fox with one pommel seat and one all-abilities harness seat.
Nearby is a nature-based balancing challenge, stepping logs and ropes to climb.
The nature-based elements lead up the steep hill towards two tunnel slides, my kids had a blast racing each other down these slides. With a bit of persistence, my 2 year old could make it up the soft-fall hill using the rock climbing holds or soft-fall bumps.
Heading back down the hill, we found a swing set with 2 regular swings, a nest swing, an all abilities swing and a toddler swing.
Next to the swings is a spinning cup, my older kids spun around until they were ready to puke!
Next to the spinning cup is a great climbing structure for the older kids.
The next area was filled with lots of toddler-friendly equipment, that older children will also enjoy. There are three slides embanked on a soft fall mountain, a yellow double slide, and a roller slide which was a huge hit with my 2 year old.
An orange dome to crawl through or climb over.
A fun climbing frame that spins around.
Water play, if your child likes to get wet bring a change of clothes.
And lots of nature-based elements, including tunnels, balancing logs and beams.
To keep the tweens entertained there is a small skate zone and lots of pathways to rides around on. Near the skate zone, there are bike repair stations.
There are shade sails, as well as lots of natural shade, BBQs, sheltered seating and park benches.
Wandi Playing Fields is located opposite Honeywood Primary School, their huge oval is open to the public outside of school hours – perfect for ball games, flying a kite or simply going for a run. I also noticed people using the basketball court while we were there, in addition basketball hoops there is a tennis net and netball rings.
The only thing this amazing playground is missing is toilets and ample parking.
