This premier play space at Bob Gordon Reserve in Bull Creek really does have something for everyone, plus it’s fully fenced so it’s the perfect spot to take the little ones!

The huge UFO is the playground’s central feature and includes a wheelchair/pram ramp, stairs and central climb which leads up to inside activities at varying heights to allow for inclusive play. 

In the same area, dubbed the UFO crater play zone, there’s plenty to explore with a seesaw, spinners, monkey bars and a shaded accessible water play section.

For the bigger kids, there’s a tower climbing structure with tube slide that also fits in with the UFO theme! Unfortunately, there are no shade sails so the structure and the sand could get very hot during the summer months.

The spacious swing section offers lots of options for kids of all ages and abilities with a basket swing, toddler swing, all abilities swing and bench swing. It’s also got plenty of shade cover and is positioned next to a large grassy area with seating so you can get comfortable while keeping an eye on the little ones.

The double flying fox adds to the excitement factor, plus there’s an all abilities option alongside a traditional seat.

Just outside the fenced play space, there are a handful of exercise stations along the path, which is great for scootering and bike riding.

Within the play space itself and in the surrounding area, there are ample picnic shelters with BBQ facilities. Check out the awesome space-inspired feature lighting!

Parents rejoice! The play space includes a toilet block with baby change facilities, and it can be accessed from within the fenced area so you don’t even need to leave the playground.

Overall, Bob Gordon Reserve is a fantastic play space that’s the Goldilocks of playgrounds – not too big or too small. It’s just right! If you love what Bibra Lake Regional Playground has to offer but find it a bit overwhelming taking younger kids, this just might be the perfect option.
