With its mosaic tiled features, mini sculpture walk, towering eucalypt trees and decent variety of all ages playground equipment, Melrose Park is a family friendly park that is worth travelling to.
For youngsters there's a four way see saw, swings, rocking animals, central fort with slides, climbing walls, a mini curved flying fox and bridges as well as a mini mock-up roadway with Give Way and Stop Signs and path circumnavigating the play area for L-plated trike and bike riders. (And no need to worry about them straying onto the road, the play zone is well fenced).
Older children have their own flying fox, a 'swing and spin' tornado, mini skateboard park for beginners, half basketball court and cricket pitch.
A mix of shade sails and trees provides shade and dotted around there are picnic shelters and pods a couple of gas barbecues and, a little way out from the playground, a little amenities block.
