Alphington Park Playground

A short distance away from HOME is Alphington Park Playground. This much-loved local hang out is currently undergoing an impressive upgrade, with completion due in late 2021.

The fresh new design integrates community feedback from local parents and children with play equipment, sand play areas and seating zones. You can take a sneak peek of what’s to come using their interactive map.

Collingwood Children’s Farm, Abbotsford

Take the kids to visit an animal farm in the heart of the city. Collingwood Children’s Farm is a not-for-profit organisation that uses all of its profits to take care of the animals and heritage farmlands, and to support people experiencing adversity.

A day spent at this local community gem will keep the kids thoroughly entertained while teaching them something new – encouraging them to meet the resident farm animals and farmers while connecting with nature.

During your visit, you can grab lunch from The Farm Cafe for an expertly brewed coffee and delicious fare made from fresh local produce.

Darling Gardens, Clifton Hill

When you’re looking for a chill and casual family outing, head to Darling Gardens with your picnic basket and frisbee.This peaceful, quiet parkland is the perfect place to unwind with your family and have some fun outdoors on a sunny Melbourne weekend.

Hays Paddock Adventure Playground, Kew

Families come from near and far to spend an afternoon at Hays Paddock Adventure Playground in Kew.

As its name proclaims, this playground really does promise an epic adventure, with equipment designed to ignite your child’s imagination. Round up a few family friends and make a day out of your visit with the kids riding slides while parents prepare a cook-up at the barbeques.

Gloworm Studios, Fairfield

Embrace your child’s inner artist and enroll them into an art class at Gloworm Studios in Fairfield. This local art school also offers adult classes, so parents can also set up their easel and nurture their creative side. Getting the entire family involved to make art together is also a good way to fill the walls in your new Caydon apartment.
