Kid-friendly cafes

KereKere Green at Fitzroy Gardens, East Melbourne

kere kere fitzroy gardensThis isn't so much an emphasis on the cafe itself (though it's pretty good and family-friendly), rather, the outside welcoming space for the kids.

This is one of those special places where inside dining works, so does the outdoor fenced-in courtyard or the grassy patch outside complete with sandpit and water play.Beware though it's not the full in splash about in your swimmers type water play but a very shallow watering spot to dip your toes in on a hot summer's day. Combine it with a bite to eat and walk around Fitzroy Gardens then you've set up your day pretty nicely!

Right now we love...

Maritime Cove Community Park, Port Melbourne

IMG 4464Quick! Ring the bell, prepare your vessell, to the high seas we go! Situated at Sandridge Beach Perc White Reserve (near the beachfront), Maritime Cove has a perfectly fitting nautical theme that incorporates the natural landscape including the foreshore dunes.

There is a life-saving tower - which is the centre-piece of the play space - and salvaged maritime assets including buoys, a crows nest, channel markers and bollards for children to climb and explore. Sea-animal sculptures and open stage areas resembling shipping containers suitable for picnics enhance the maritime theme. Other features include climbing walls, ladder bridges, water features and a dedicated younger children’s play area.
