Middleton Beach Playground
With blue waters, white sands, and a stunning line of pine trees this is a gorgeous beach – and a brand new nautical themed kid’s playground only adds to the attraction.
There are actually 2 playgrounds in this long thin strip of grass, one at each end. One of the best things about this playground (apart from the gorgeous beach) is that you can sit on the veranda at the Three Anchors Café and sip your cappuccino while the kids literally play at arm’s length away.
We also recommend taking the Ellen Cove boardwalk to burn off the cake and Capp, and to get some sensational views of Middleton Beach.
Emu Point Playground
Emu Point is another beautiful beach, with white sand and fun playground. Albany is super blessed to have two wonderfully situated playgrounds on the beach!
We seem to have spent a lot of time at this playground. When we’re away from home we seem to put our babies to sleep in the car (is that a bad habit?). So we would drive around Albany and then the 15 minutes out to the playground. By the time we get there, bub would be asleep and Little Miss can play on the great equipment.
We’ve enjoyed visiting the Emu Point Café on several occasions. However, it’s a bit far from the Playground to let the kids play.
Eyre Park Playground – Middleton Beach
This is an enormous Playground, and has recently been refurbished to include lots of new challenging stuff. We take bread and walk around the lake and feed the ducks.
There are great BBQs here, which is useful if there is a strong wind blowing at either of the above listed coastal playgrounds.
Cull Park Playground, Mira Mar (opposite Retravision)
This playground has a fun bridge, lots of ducks and some great playing equipment. And not least of all, Dippy the Dinosaur with a dual slide which is a winner for our kids.
There are usually few kids at this playground (often none at all) which is a contrast to the other listed parks. Combined with having great, well thought out equipment means that this is a real favourite with our kids, especially in winter when the beachside Playgrounds are really windy and cold!
A place to eat near Eyre Park & Middleton Beach Playgrounds
Bayside Merchants must be one of Albany’s most popular eateries. It is always full whenever we go past! With good reason, the interior is funky and warm and the food on offer healthy and delicious. Just a short walk from Eyre Park Playground we always grab a coffee here to sip on while the kids have a play. Or… if you are planning to have an epic Albany playgrounds play, you could start at the Eyre Park Playground, stop for lunch at Bayside Merchants and then continue onto the Middleton Beach Playground.
