The Ron Barassi Snr Park is a new playground and recreational space that opened just last weekend in north west Docklands! The park is named in recognition of Ronald James Barassi Snr who played as a rover for Melbourne Football Club from 1936 to 1940. Ron Barassi Snr went on to inspire the Australian Football League's father-son rule.
This new playground located in Docklands is sure to be a favourite this Spring/Summer with its sand and water play areas, a giant sandpit surrounding this rocket like structure, two giant slides, some rope bridges, a small slide, a digger, a round swing and lots of grass next to the park to run on.
To slide down the big slides, little ones must climb inside the rocket using a ladder at several intervals. Little Miss wasn't keen to try it this time but I am sure she will try it soon. She did however enjoy the water play and the sand play structure.
Note: Come prepared with sunscreen, snacks, water, change of clothes and a bucket & spade. There is free parking opposite the playground. The playground is not fenced or shaded. There is some places to sit as well as a picnic table and a bbq area. A unisex toilet is in the building nearby with a change table available.
