Woodbridge Riverside Park is located in Guildford, east of Perth, just a 10 minute drive from the Swan Valley
Next time you are in the Swan Valley you must add a visit to Woodbridge Riverside Park to your day. It's a fantastic adventure playground with something for all ages. It has winding footpaths through the park so is great for pushing the pram around or riding small bikes or scooters.
We went on a very hot day around 2pm and as you can see from my kids faces in the photos it was very hot as there is no shade over the main playground area, including the pirate ship, but as the sun went down more shade fell over the river side of the park - lucky for the water play feature that kept us cool enough to enjoy our visit.
The water play feature requires kids to turn the pump every 30 secs - 1 minute and open dams to let the water flow, so its a team effort to get the water to flow down the dams and onto the little creek below, it keeps them very busy!
And of course what little pirate wouldn't love the great wooden pirate ship playground!
There is a mix of white sand, red sand and soft fall with so many different play features, you'll need hours to explore this fabulous playground. There are lots of rocks, and tunnels and hills to enjoy some nature play too!
There are also a couple of play features for wheelchairs, with a liberty swing as well as a spinning table you can place a wheel chair on and use the wheel in the middle to spin around (sorry I didn't get a photo of this one my battery went flat).
We loved this little boat too! As the shade came over we enjoyed our afternoon snack on this boat, it moves back and forth with your body movement and has little cup holders on the tables. There are lots of spots too around the park to sit down and enjoy lunch or a snack.
And the other awesome feature of this park is the Flying Fox! It has two cables, and one has a seat with a harness which is great for younger or disabled children.
We were really impressed with the all ability features of this playground, with swings and play equipment suitable for wheelchairs, the harnessed seat on the flying fox, and there are also signs around the park that teach children sign language.. my 7yo absolutely loved reading them all and showing me how to sign words.
We highly recommend you visit Woodbridge Riverside Park next time you are out this way, it makes a great day trip for the school holidays.
