Bibra Lake Regional Playground
Updated: Feb 4, 2020
This is an amazing fully fenced playground on the edge of Bibra Lake. Access is via Progress Drive. The Bibra Lake Regional Playground has double gates to keep the kids contained but they will be so busy with all the different pieces of equipment they won't want to leave!
It is hard to know where to start but the larger features of the playground are the Skywalk with it's long green slides, the Assault Course and the dual Flying Fox.
The playground design references Nyungar culture with it's giant talking rocks in a yarning circle and the fish trap inspired climbing frames and cubbies.
The playground design has also been inspired by the local flora and fauna including long neck turtles, butterflies and dragonflies. At the Giant Turtle Splash pad the kids can activate water by pressing buttons on the grass reeds. Alongside the mother turtle are her babies hatching from their eggs.
The kids can get lost in the Pole Maze made from recycled power poles.
There is a fort with sand and water play so bring a change of clothes. The fort has a big water tank on it so the kids can experiment with pumping water and opening the dams.
There are balancing logs, inground trampolines and swings of all shapes and sizes for all abilities, including a bird's nest swing.
This playground is designed for universal access and all abilities. There are wheelchair accessible ramps and Australia’s first wheelchair accessible barbecues. The toilet block includes a Changing places facility with tracking hoists, height adjustable adult sized changing bench, automatic doors and enough space for two carers.
The playground has picnic benches scattered around as well as some main gazebos near the barbecues. There are some grassed areas for a picnic or you can set up outside the fenced play area where there is plenty of grass overlooking Bibra Lake.
There is plenty of parking and there are also bike racks so if you live locally you can ride here and secure your bikes. There are two entrances north and south and the playground is open every day from 8.30am until 9pm.
There are walking and cycle paths heading north and south from the playground and if you are up to it you can walk or cycle the Bibra Lake Loop, a 6km trail around the lake.
Alternatively you can explore other sections of the Beeliar Regional Park including nearby North Lake. You can visit the Native Arc Animal Rescue Centre or the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre, both on Hope Road and both offering eco based activities and events for kids.
