The Barkly Gardens playground located at Mary Street in Richmond is a gem. Little Mister, his sister and Kate’s little ones visited this playground on our most recent Melbourne trip in October last year. The playground consists of a main structure, swings, a bucket swing, a sandpit and play structures with slides for toddlers.
The main green climbing structure with giant green slide is a must try at this playground if your kids are older enough to climb on their own. Little Miss and Kate’s little ones loved climbing away this structure during our visit. It is quite intriguing and the climbing ropes make it a great challenge for them.
Little Mister loved the sandpit and climbing and sliding down little play structures. The sandpit was full of toys left by locals for little ones to enjoy which was a nice touch.
Last but not least, the kids loved swinging in the bucket swing overlooking the Barkly Gardens.
