Deep Creek Eco Play Pakenham, Park & Playground
Looking for a playground that has it all? Deep Creek Eco Play in Melbourne’s South East has an all-inclusive playground, inviting children of all ages and abilities to play, learn and get active. A great place to take kids all year round, it also includes water play for those hot sunny days.
Deep Creek Eco Play Pakenham
The Deep Creek Eco play space is beautifully landscaped to showcase Australian flora, and cleverly designed for kids to enjoy sensory exploration.
Located in the quiet outskirts of the ever-evolving Pakenham, this fully fenced space is perfect for little ones on foot, bikes, scooters, prams and wheelchairs.
Its hard to miss the large towering steel dragonfly that the park is centered around. This structure is designed to be accessible via a ramp and provides a safe space to explore and view the surrounding wetlands.
There are small slides, a large sand play area, and multiple swings (including a liberty swing). But the highlight is definitely the shaded water play! Perfect for hot summer days – there is the option to play in the streams created by the tap, or get drenched in the fountains that burst from the ground. Make sure to take a change of clothes because the kids will absolutely get wet.
On the outskirts of the playground there are gorgeous quiet nooks filled with Australian natives, simple wooden structures, pavers and archways to explore. These are great for kids that find the traditional playground a bit of a sensory overload.
Another unique attraction of this play space is the purpose-built wheelchair slalom course – a simple fun course with bumps and obstacles children in wheelchair.
This area also has a separate BBQ space with benches to accommodate a wheelchair.
This park caters for any occasion – offering lots of shade, accessibility, BBQ spaces and benches.
To top it all off, there are even toilets and a cafe next door! The perfectly created play space for children of all abilities and needs.
