That's not a playground, this is a playground! We have termed these playgrounds "Perth's Super Parks" as they are so much more than just somewhere to play - at these parks you are guaranteed a day of adventure.
These parks are not only big, they feature nature based elements and large play equipment to give kids bit of a challenge and a thrill. While they do have play features for younger children, these parks are especially ideal for kids that are of the age where they are a little harder to impress and may be starting to say "this playground is boring". There will be no boring playgrounds talk with these playgrounds, in fact they will begging to go back again and again.
And of course when you are heading out for a day of adventure it's nice to have toilets, barbeques and picnic shelters too, so we will let you know what facilities each park has also.

Due to the scale of these parks and playgrounds they are mostly reliant on natural shade, so you may need to leave your play until later in the day on a very hot day, and of course don't forget to take hats and sunscreen along.
We hope that you and your family enjoy your day out of adventure. Don't forget to pack a picnic or BBQ and spend the day away - and enjoy an early night as the kids crash out without any trouble when you get home.
