We recognise the significance and value of play in children’s development and currently look after 114 playgrounds located throughout Kingston. Diversity is a fundamental principle of play and we aim to provide a broad range of options for activities and settings, spaces and play opportunities for children of different ages and abilities. You can locate your local park, or search for specific facilities using our Playground Location List.
Council has a Playground Strategy and Development Plan that provides a framework of how we provide for play at Kingston while setting out a blueprint for the future of playground renewal and design.

Peter Scullin Reserve, Mordialloc
Due to safety concerns, we've made the tough decision to close the much-loved Peter Scullin Reserve Playground until further notice. Ongoing corrosion due to the salty air has led to structural decline. We apologise for the inconvenience
