Sydney may have its Bicentennial Park (ie Sydney Olympic Park) but in Melbourne, or more accurately, Chelsea we also have our own Bicentennial Park.
Managed by Kingston City Council, Bicentennial Park is is Scotch Parade, Chelsea
Mel Ref: 93 E12
Bicentennial Park is a favourite with locals who know it as Mount Chelsea with a play space, kilometres of walking trails with links to the Long Beach Trail and the Chelsea Netball Centre.
The play space with lots of whimsical and fun elements for all ages includes two big mound slides which are the centre piece of the play space. Pick your slide depending on how much excitement you want. Next to the slides is a Smurf village with a music hut, story hut and play hut complete with a mooing cow in the middle of the village.
Other elements include sculptural gardens, a shaded sand pit, Tinkerbelle sand pit, a giant basket swing, hammock, Mount Chelsea Express train, huge green grasshopper and bee springers, stand-on spinners, spiral slide, clock panel, rope climbing frame, stepping stones, rowing boat on rocker, chain traverse, tic-tac-toe, monkey bars, flying fox, wooden structure with various ladders and dual wave slides, circle set at an angle which revolves around and revolving lotus leaf with hand wheel.
There are shelters with BBQs and tables, toilets, seats (including some wonderful curved seats) and water taps are spread around. The area is surrounded by fences with child proof gates.
