The playground at Len Packham Reserve, Coolbellup, is situated next to the skate park, behind the library, and is a fabulous nature play space, tucked away under the big trees so there’s lots of shade.

There is plenty of opportunity for children to create their own adventure here with a great range of play equipment suitable for all ages and abilities, this includes a stacked log climb, a spiral ladder climb, a net tunnel bridge, climbing ropes, tunnel slide and a dry creek bed with rocks, and much more.

They can explore at ground level amongst the natural materials used such as rocks and recycled timber, or they can climb up to the tree house and let their imaginations take them on a journey, with a great slide if they need to make a quick escape from any invaders!

It’s perfect for little ones and big ones, especially if your older child prefers to play on the skate park, but make sure you have hats and sunscreen as there’s no shade over the skate area. This is another great spot if you need to exercise your dog, with the off lead park next to it. There‚Äôs BBQ facilities with picnic tables if you want to cook up some sausages for the next birthday party and there’s additional shaded timber seating around the outside of the park.

There’s a smaller slide for those not keen on climbing to the top deck and there’s a small round about for those that enjoy getting dizzy!

You could spend all morning here, just be sure to BYO your coffee as the closest is the Coolbellup shopping centre. The playground was created in 2020 and is a wonderful addition to the local playgrounds. It is definitely worth a visit.
