la porchetta elwood

Pizza, playground and the beach - what a combo!

The council have (finally) cleaned up this fully fenced playground. What once was a drag, dark and overgrown jungle is now a clean and inviting playground with lots of natural light, even the rotunda (which has seen many birthday parties) has been cleaned up and branches snipped. The area has also been widened and there's more space for kicking a ball now the fence that divides the Lady Forster Kinder and playground has been set back.

The main attraction of this playground is that you can order a pizza and your drinks (it's fully licensed Mama) and sit outdoors overlooking your kids. A great warmer weather spot to have an early dinner or lunch with some friends. There's also a gelato bar inside La Porchetta - so a gelato and walk on the beach afterwards completes your outing, right!
