You are might be wondering where this great playground, and beautiful park is. It's well hidden, if you drive past you most likely won't see it! It's tucked behind some rolling green hills next to the Stirling Train Station.
The playground is located within the beautiful Stirling Civic Gardens, which features lots of rolling green, grassy hills, winding walking paths, which are perfect for riding small bikes and scooters and you may enjoy a short walk up to the war memorial.
There is also a small man made lake which is great for tadpoling, so take your nets and jars along!
No tadpoles caught on the day but lots of these little fish - that were just as much fun to catch!
There is a large shaded table & chairs area right alongside the large playground with great ramp access from the shelter to the playground - bigger kids will love all the little flying foxes. It's quite a big playground so there's something for all ages with lots of low level play, and of course fun in the sand with sand soft fall underneath the whole playground.
Toilets and a water fountain are located close to the playground also.
Stirling Civic Gardens is also great for enjoy a short family walk or ride around the winding paths that lead up to the war memorial. There is a small waterfall that feeds the lake alongside the playground.
This park is sometimes the location for outdoor movies in spring & summer so check out Outdoor Cinema page to find out if there are any movies schedule here
There are no cafes or shops within short walking distance so make sure you bring all your food and drinks along. You can drive through the Muzz Buzz at Innaloo for your coffee on the way however.
Drive and park the car or catch the train to the beautiful playground and gardens. - it makes a great park for a catch up with friends and family too with lots of grassed area to run around and lots of shady trees to enjoy a picnic under.
Safety Considerations: small lake close to the playground and some bushland about so be wary of snakes - closely supervise children around the lake and bush areas.
What to Bring: sunscreen, hats, sandpit toys, small bikes/scooters, tadpoling net & jar, picnic/bbq lunch.
