Martime Cove Community Park
If your child is in any way engineer minded or loves to watch big machinery then a trip to the Maritime Cove Community Park is a must.
Set in Port Melbourne at the end of the Perce White Reserve, this playground repurposes old maritime equipment and is filled with simple machines to entertain the kids.
There are excellent examples of simple machines throughout the interactive stations for all ages. Water play with pumps and fountains are great for the younger ones.
The older kids can set off water spouts via the seesaw or use pulleys to move buckets of sand.
Maritime equipment has been repurposed like a giant buoy climbing station and a crow’s nest to explore.
Shipping containers on either side of the playground provide shaded areas for a picnic and there is even a workout station for adults.
There are drinking fountains, seating and plenty of car parking. Caps Café and toilets are steps away at Sandridge Beach. There is plenty of free parking.
When the kids are ready to go see the BIG machines at work, head down the timber boardwalk and along the water’s edge to the Sandridge Lookout.
There are great views of both the city and all of the activity loading shipping containers at Webb Dock.
On blustery days the wind blowing through the lookout makes its own kind of special music.
