Beautiful play area at Docklands

Docklands Park is one kid friendly park, and Docklands as a suburb itself is fast emerging as a trendy, kid friendly area. Take a look around, especially at the Harbour Town area. Many event organisers in Melbourne love to hold their Christmas carol events in Docklands, and the Harbour Town Shopping Centre is also home to many kid friendly activities and stores. Environmental sustainability reigns. This is what the creators of Docklands Park had in mind.

Ample play space in the city

You can either get to Docklands Park by catching tram route 70 from Flinders Street, or the free City Circle Tram. A fantastic bike riding trail adjoins this park, and is a hub that connects bike riders to other parts of Docklands. A real playground is enjoyed here.

Simple yet great

There is plenty of play space to keep your kids fit and entertained. You have the usual swings, and there is an area where you can sit, relax and watch your child/children play, many with a take away coffee in tow if you really want one. Some of the area feels sandy, while other parts of this awesome parkland enjoys some ample green space. For the latter, many teenagers also love using their skateboards down the mini slopes heading towards the harbour. It is also sensible to see some appropriate shading above the play equipment.

Really pretty sculpture

A beautiful sculpture is here, and Docklands Park is also home to the brightest toilet buildings in Melbourne. Furthermore, there is a popular, spacious basketball court across the road. Docklands Park is extremely close to Bourke and Collins Streets. You're also a short stroll away from any AFL action at Etihad Stadium, as well as Southern Cross train station with eateries and a shopping centre dedicated predominantly to fashion nearby. Docklands Park is right next to the colourful NAB office building.

In great weather as with any park in Melbourne, Docklands Park feels relatively small. However Docklands Park is a great place for the little ones to play, have fun, be creative and let their little imaginations run wild. A cool, kid friendly spot that needs to be visited at least once to be appreciated for sure.
