Faulkner "Volcano" Park is located between Belmont Shopping Centre and the Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre, and is approx 15-20 mins north east from Perth city - and is open from dawn 'til dusk.
If you're looking for a playground for the kids to waste a morning or afternoon away, this is the one! There is so much to do and see, and there is something for the little kids right up to the bigger kids - best of all the big Volcano that shoots out "steam" (vapourised water) every 15-20mins.
The giant volcano is the most obvious and generally most loved feature of this playground. It has a pathway that winds up to the - it's wide enough that you can push the pram up there if you want to. It has a couple of slides on the side of the volcano or you can use the pathway to get back down.
Make sure you bring a change of clothes and a towel, the "steam" that comes out of the top of the Volcano is vapourised water, and the kids can stand on the vent when the water comes out and they get pretty wet! There are also some other water sprays in and amongst the garden. The kids will love the one that shoots up randomly - watch them run around trying to catch them.
For the bigger kids there is also a great flying fox and a great play area with monkey bars and lots of other things to climb on.
And the little ones don't miss out with a great little toddler section and other little sand play areas around the park.
Faulkner "Volcano" Park is a great place to have a kid's birthday party or family gathering with lots of shade, grassed areas and several free barbeques and seated areas available. There are no toilets within the park, however there are some located just across the carpark outside the Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre. This park seems to always be very busy, so check with the City of Belmont if you can reserve one of the seated areas - if not get there early! Also you can get coffee from the Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre.
Safety Considerations - this is quite a big park and the Volcano in the middle makes it difficult to see to the other side. So keeping an eye on mulitple children is difficult. Fortunately the whole park is fully enclosed with fencing with a few entry/exit gates with safety locks located around the park. Toilets are located across the carpark so children need to be escorted there.
What to bring? Definitely a towel and change of clothes (due to the water features), packed lunch or barbeque, hats, sunscreen, picnic rug, chairs, sand pit toys
