Opportunity Playspace Rotary Park Wanneroo
Updated: May 1, 2020
Grab your picnic and head to Opportunity Playspace at Rotary Park in Wanneroo, a playground designed for a half day visit. It is an all abilities playground with barbecue and picnic facilities, water fountains, toilets and a bike repair station. Although the road side section is fenced the fence does not fully enclose the playground. Being so close to the lake there is a snake risk here and in Spring there can be swooping magpies. Parking is available in the adjacent car park as well as in roadside bays along Scenic Drive. Be warned that the car parks can get very busy on weekends during sport fixtures.
The large wooden fort hides a variety of play opportunities designed to get the kid's imagination going including a climbing wall, slides, climbing nets, music play, a shop front and a fireman's pole. The elevated walkway makes it wheelchair accessible.
There is also a spider web for climbing, an obstacle course with a variety of monkey bars for the kids to master and numerous swings and spinners. The playspaces are all interconnected with paved pathways.
Rotary Park also includes the Rotary Heritage Wall which pays tribute to Wanneroo's history since Federation.
Also within the Park is the Community Sentinels grove of trees and 6 interpretive panels depicting the Noongar Seasons, some of which can be discovered outside the playspace area.
We used Rotary Park as the beginning point for our walks south to Studmaster Park and north to Wanneroo Pines. It is a great incentive to get the kids walking or riding if they can have a picnic and a play on this amazing playground afterwards!
The Opportunity Playspace is also a great half way mark for a rest if you are cycling around the Lake Joondalup Circuit.
