Bicentennial Park

Bicentennial Park is a regional park created from reclaimed land, which had been operating as a local tip since 1959.

Since its redevelopment, which began with the first playground built on the site in 1981, the park has become a much-loved and widely used community asset. 

Improvements have included a skate park in 1990, a rotunda in 1993, and a new pavilion for the baseball club in 1994. 

In 2017, a major project aimed at improving facilities for the use of local youths saw the completion of a new skate park with mogul plaza, a youth zone featuring a multi-court area featuring soccer and basketball goals and spectator seating, a stage, timber climbing poles and a DJ table.

A centrepiece of the park is the huge adventure playground, developed in 2010, which comprises two long slides, a Smurf village with a music hut, a story hut and a play hut complete with a mooing cow, sculptural garden, a shaded sand pit, a giant basket swing, hammock, the Mount Chelsea Express train, huge green grasshopper, stand-on spinners, spiral slide, rope climbing frame, stepping stones, chain traverse, tic-tac-toe, monkey bars, flying fox, a wooden structure with various ladders, poles and slides and a Liberty Swing for people with mobility difficulties accessed with a MLAK key.

For older residents, there are kilometres of walking trails connecting up to the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands Trail and the Longbeach Trail, a fitness track which is home to the local Park Run and a Disc Golf course.

There is a large fenced off leash dog park so your furry friend can run around too.

For more relaxing activities, the park has numerous shelters with BBQs and tables, toilets, seats and water taps, with a focus on improved pathways and lighting in the park to increase public safety.
