If you’re looking for some fun to relieve the summer sun, we love the all-abilities Adventure Playground at Hadfield Park, Wallan.
The Splash Park feature is a major draw card and is in operation for a cool down from December to March, while the main playground area is open year round, but the splash park feature will have them playing for hours! There’s a water play area with a range of jets, a splash play table featuring pumps, troughs and water channels, a three ring water tunnel with squirting water jets, an aqua drop bucket and a ‘creek’ bed seating area with water jets. The splash park filtration system meets aquatics industry standards and is monitored daily. An alarm system alerts Council to mechanical breakdowns so it can be attended to immediately.
In terms of playground features, the impressive five-story tower with three slides is the hero here. You’ll also find swings, plus two of our favourite big nest swings, a 25 metre double flying fox, and shaded sandpit play area and importantly lots of shade. Amenities include shaded bbqs, tables and toilets with all access change area.
Wallan Skate Park is also located in Hadfield Park featuring a good variety of objects to skate, such as ledges, rails and gaps, and will cater to both tranny and street skaters.
Mr Whippy is known to appear at peak times. If you’ve ran out the door without picnic supplies, the playground is just across from the town centre so it’s easy to pick up supplies.
