Powlett Reserve - East Melbourne - Melbourne - Review

The Powlett Reserve playground is one of Kate's little ones' favourite Melbourne playgrounds. Perfectly located two blocks away from the Eastern Hill Fire Station where weekly kid friendly Fire Safety Displays are performed (see our review here) and close to Square & Compass café.

The Powlett Reserve playground has lots of areas for little ones to wonder, climb, go down fireman polls, have the choice of a number of different slides, play in the sandpit and more.

Don't forget to also grab your bucket, spade and sand toys for a play in the sandpit before resting for a drink and a snack.

The Powlett Reserve is a fantastic playground, you won't be disappointed. The playground only has partial fencing along part of the playground however it redirects kids to the center of the playground.
