Glasson Park in East Freo looks deceptively small from the outside, but there’s loads to keep kids entertained for hours. It’s shaded, gated, close to coffee and has so much to offer.

The double-storey playground is the instant attraction for confident toddlers and older kids with heaps of different and challenging equipment. They’ll be delighted by flying foxes, wobbly climbing obstacles, stepping stone challenges, spinning see saws, multiple slides and more. There’s even small pretend/imagination play areas and sand play.

For the little ones the dinosaur double slide will delight, as will the sand funnel and stencils. Just be prepared to explain why you can’t go play in the Kindy area next door!

It’s really well shaded with loads of leafy trees as well as shade sails over all the play equipment.

There’s even a half basketball court, with a backdrop for tennis fans of all ages to practise their backhand, too.

There are lots of grassy spots to set out a picnic mat and relax under the trees (with a coffee from across the road) while the kids play.

With two BBQ’s as well as picnic tables and toilets, it’s a great location for parties and mother’s group catch-ups.

Dogs are also allowed within the gated park on-leash, with water bowls attached to the drinking fountains.

Located on George Street and Glyde Street there’s free (limited) street parking, plus a few places to eat across the road, including Hubbles Yard Cafe and Young George.
