What a great playground, we knew that already though as had been many times. Perfect spot to book for children’s birthday parties and the space you book is so large we had people pop into the space a bit further away and it wasn’t a bother!! Kids had an amazing time and so did all of the parents! Also it’s fully fenced which is awesome to not have to worry about little kids escaping (I know there are always other worries). But 5 star experience, thanks City of Vincent for this amazing park!

The space is a fantastic playground for 7 - 8 year old children. This was a great addition to our ANZAC Cottage excursion. The space was clean and accurately described. However, the lack of amenities was a slight nuisance. Having only one girls and one boys toilet for 60+ people was somewhat troublesome.
