So its beach weather. How about taking the 'hips' to the beach with a difference? South Melbourne's beach playground on Beaconsfield Parade is just seconds from the actual beach, but its a fully enclosed hip friendly version. You can now spend time on the beach, and then, when it all gets a bit too much, head to this playground and let the kids run riot whilst you relax under the shade sails. We love this little hip place and it really is a great compromise between a playground and a beach.
Are you in Melbourne, and looking for some more hip playgrounds? Head to Melbourne Playgrounds website. There are now over 2000 playground reviews, so certainly a must if you are new to Melbourne or just looking for a new playground to visit.
