Kirkdale Park nature play space, Brunswick East

The nature play space at Kirkdale Park is now complete.Kirkdale Park Brunswick East

The playspace at Kirkdale Park in Brunswick East has been upgraded as part of Council’s 2015-16 Playground Strategy Implementation program.

The result is a unique new ‘nature play space’, featuring a first for Moreland’s parks; a hand water pump at the top of a playful mound. The intent is to encourage children to interact with water and other natural materials as the water trickles through rock ponds, down to a sand digging patch.

Inspired by the Merri Creek environment the playspace also features a timber tee pee and bird-hide play structure nestled amongst beautiful native plantings, complimented by more traditional play equipment; swings, slides and a carousel.


A celebration was held at the new playspace on Wednesday 13 July 2016 with residents and park users.

A note on dogs

Residents are reminded that Kirkdale Park is an off-leash park, however dogs are not permitted in the playspace or barbecue areas at any time, and must be on leash within 2 metres of the Merri Creek Shared Trail.
