princes park playground, carlton north

Mamma LOVES this great little playground. It has something for everyone and continues to challenge our 5 year old. The main play structure is a climbing frame, cubby house and ladder in one. Your confident kiddos will be up in a flash, just keep an eye on them as they skip over the gap to the slide. Beyond this popular hub, is your classic sandpit play, with added tools to scoop, sift and build with. There are a bunch of little huts, some with tunnels, others with slides and all with plenty of space for Mamma to grab a seat and supervise the fun in this little village. The entire area at Princes Park is beautiful and a hive of activity with the ovals hosting soccer matches and the running track constantly flowing.

Mamma's special mention: Looking for a treat or a coffee before heading home? Brunetti’s is always a nice stop off for the whole family. Or check out the Carlton Farmers Market on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month.
