The Ivey Watson Playground is located in Poolgara Family Area (formerly Lotterywest Family Area) Kings Park and has been specifically designed for children under 6. Within the Ivey Watson Playground is the beautiful Koorak Cafe (formerly Sticky Beaks / Biara Cafe), making this the perfect central location to catch up with friends or hold a small family gathering.
The play area is quite large with lots of different play features. The whole playground is enclosed with fencing, except at the entrance which is open. This large playground will provide hours of entertainment as kids explore all the elements. It is designed for 6 and under.
There is also plenty of shelter if it rains, so this is a great place to catch up on that partly rainy day when you just need to get out of the house. This shelter is available to hire for parties and other functions.
You'll love the giant sized story books near the pirate ship play area that are great for some story time during their play.
Of course the playground is surrounded by the beautiful trees, bush and nature that is Kings Park. There are lots of grassed areas, shade, seating and tables around - so theres lots of room to set up your picnic rug or enjoy a packed lunch or something from Koorak Cafe.
Make sure you check out Koorak Cafe, it has an amazing and delicious range of light meals, drinks and desserts at very reasonable prices. It's open for breakfast and lunch daily, and you can dine under the patio or take your food onto the grassed area and enjoy a picnic.
If you haven't yet been to the Ivey Watson Playground and Koorak Cafe in the Poolgarla Family Area - then make it the location for your next playdate. It's close to the city making it central location to meet for those both north and south of the river.
