Mama Bec rushed to check out the newly redeveloped Green Gully Reserve as soon as it opened in July and she was not disappointed!! The focal point is a huge green tower with a large spiral slide to shoot you back down from the top, plus a straight slide for the less adventurous, along with observation window, lookout, and lots of climbing opportunities. 

Other attractions include a tightrope hill climb, climbing posts, and a xylophone panel. Younger kids will enjoy the small tunnel, tree stumps to jump between, balance beams, a small slide and of course the swings. 

A series of gorgeous carved wooden birds are a highlight and stepping stones around the base of the tower and between the paths invite movement and exploration. Adults have not been forgotten with two fitness areas – the climbing gym is fantastic and will be popular with older kids too.

There’s plenty of grass for ball games and Brimbank Bicycle Education Centre, and a dog off lead park with agility equipment are close by. The nearby bocce court was in action when we were there so we enjoyed watching the men play with their plastic cups of whiskey and passionate arguments over who’s ball was closest! 

BBQs, drinking taps, toilets, shelter, picnic tables.
