Highett Reserve Playground
Highett Reserve Playground is in Melbourne’s southeast adjacent to Waves leisure center.
The playground has a wooden fort with slides, chain ladder and for little ones who love to climb there is also a rock-climbing wall.
The see saw/swing is pretty cool, it goes up and down and spins 360 around and is very popular for all ages.
Under the big leafy tree which surrounds the playground is a regular swing set but also a nest swing and some wooden carvings of toadstools, snake and green frog.
A basketball half court has been recently resurfaced for the older kids to practice their shooting so bring a ball for your kids if they want to play around.
This reserve has plenty of space, as there are 3 ovals next to the playground to kick the football or bring the dog as there is a dedicated off leash oval.
There is an undercover BBQ area is right next to the playground so perfect for hosting a party or even just organising a family catch up or play date. There are also lots of places to pop your picnic mat too if you want to just bring some snacks and relax.
