The Stirling Civic Gardens Playground is tucked away behind rolling green hills in the garden park next to the Stirling Train Station. It's a beautiful park to play and wander around with a big playground (that was upgraded early 2022), small lakes, water features and pathways that wind around the shady park and gardens.
The new playground is similar to the previous playground, with lots of obstacle type features and loads of play elements for all ages. Just like the old playground there are a couple of entry points to the playground straight from the large elevated picnic shelter.
This playground pretty much has every play feature you can think of with tunnels, climbing walls, firemans poles, ramps, bridges, monkey bars, rope climbs, ladders, slides (including two lower slides for the little ones and a big winding tunnel slide for the bigger kids), swings and more.
At one end there is also a nature / sand pit area with balancing logs and a see-saw.
The playground is mostly sand surface with the swings and a ride on bouncy car on the soft fall surface section. It is well shaded with a combination of shade sails and natural shade.
The exisiting large picnic shelter right alongside the playground, that over looks the main lake has been maintained in the upgrade.
Alongside the playground are toilets, a water fountain and a bike rack. One of the toilet cubicles includes a baby change table.
It's definitely worth bringing along small bikes or scooters, with paths that wind through the gardens, past the lake, to the war memorial and a small water feature that feeds the lake.
Free parking is located at the Stirling Civic Gardens or it's just a short stroll from the Stirling Train Station. IKEA Innaloo is about a 15-20 min walk away and in the other direction there are some takeaway outlets (Subway and Chicken Treat) and cafes (Cheeky Cinos and El Greco Cafe) just off Karrinyup Road.
Stirling Civic Gardens is the perefect place for a play and a picnic or a BBQ to meet with friends and family or as a train adventure destination.
