Memorial Park Armadale is next to Armadale Shopping City in a lovely grassy and shady reserve alongside a local war memorial.
The reserve features beautiful natural shade, manicured garden beds filled with colourful flowers, a big grassed area, covered areas to sit and just a has a general peaceful and relaxed feel to it.
The playground is train themed and includes an authentic restored railway signal as a centrepiece, a train shaped play piece that kids can climb aboard and climb through, a rail bridge and a train station.
It's not all trains with a big wooden fort with a cargo net or rock climbing entry and large twisting slide back down.
If that’s too big for the little ones there is an adventure climb and slide for them alongside the train.
The park also features an all abilities play feature with an all abilities see-saw.
There are plenty of swings throughout the playground also.
You almost need to carry around a set of table tennis bats and ball ins your handbag these days with table tennis becoming a popular feature in most new parks.
Sensory play also features at the park with musical instruments.
And sand play.
