gardiner reserve, north melbourne

Mamma says this park is super cute even though it has lots of spiders! But at least they’re the playful and sculptural kind - phew!

Gardiner Reserve has had a major makeover with the installation of new park equipment designed for 2-12 year olds along with a major park expansion. There’s now so much greenery, space to run around and have a picnic. Native plants have also been added to new landscaping to bring great greenery to the neighbourhood.

With most of the play equipment made from wooden materials, the whole look and feel of the play space is very organic and natural. The kids will have so much fun pulling spidey’s legs made out of rope, climbing webs and using their imagination as they play across this very well thought-out space. Each section has something different to offer, from swings to the sand pit and the cutest little cubby house Mamma has ever seen. 

Park perfection and well worth the visit!

Mamma's special mention: The park is located across the road from North Melbourne Pool so double the attraction!

the nitty gritty
