The brand new Picasso Park at Alkimos Vista offers an artistic and creative play experience for kids (and adults) of all ages
The 2.5-hectare park features a two-storey undercover play structure, slides, music play, lots of climbing obstacles, a birds nest swing, full-size basketball court, smart benches, exercise equipment and more!
The two-storey undercover play structure is a standout! Not only is the design fun and creative, the undercover designs means the playground is not only sun safe, but it can also be utilised by kids rain or shine. The play structure can be access multiple ways, my fearless toddlers who obviously take after their sister surprised me with their climbing abilities, scaling ladders, ropes and even trying to tackle rock climbing! The play structure can also be easily accessed by stairs. The top level of the play structure is actually at ground level, so it is easily accessible by wheelchairs, parents and grandparents.
To the back of the play structure kids can climb the rocks, there are colourful poles they can grab onto to help them up.
There is a small nature play woodchip area with balancing logs. The bird net swing was a big hit with the kids, I love that 3 or 4 kids fit on at once, so there is no fighting about taking turns.
Speaking tubes and music play by the basketball court.
The full-size basketball court includes hoops on each end of the court, with netball rings on the back. There are smart benches on either side of the court to charge your mobile and access free wifi. A table tennis table on one side and hopscotch on the other.
Sprout Hub has relocated from Alkimos Beach to Picasso Park, serving awesome coffee and food. Open 10am-2pm Thursday – Sunday.
Picasso Park also includes sheltered picnic areas, BBQs, drink fountain and toilets.
Although located beside Marmion Avenue the play areas are set well away from the main road, the playground is partially fenced along Picasso Promenade.
Location: 16 Picasso Promenade, Alkimos
