Spend a day of family fun at St Kilda Adventure Playground, covering over 4 hectares (10 acres) along the seafront. This popular family attraction features a reconstruction of a shipwreck, wooden castles, huge slides, zip lines, and lots of toys and games. Opened in 1982 and funded through community fundraising, the playground provides recreational programs to disadvantaged kids living in the area. Often cited as one of the state’s finest adventure parks, the playground has gone through a number of improvements and upgrades, including the addition of a set of play equipment shaped like a submarine, as well as a small maze, designed specifically to be enjoyed by younger children.

St Kilda Adventure Playground Reviews
We visited with our 9 and 11 year old sons. They love playgrounds and rated this as one of the best ever. Such a beautiful space for all ages, they had 2 hours here playing hide and seek, basketball..... more »
Great community playground with kitchen and BBQ facilities - private seated area can be booked for parties too! Lots of variety of play for kids up to upper primary. more »
Great space for kids to play. Parents need to take some accountability for their kids which most do but some sit in the shade on their phone whilst their kids are ignoring the rules but that happens everywhere. The staff are friendly and approachable. A true gem in St K for families.
Equipment is great for 5-12 yrs old, it really is kinda an adventure! Got to meet the staff from Port Phillip council and they really want to take it places. Terrible parking or none at all though which is such a bummer for this small hidden treasure!
