This big adventure and nature-based playground is located right on the water’s edge and is the perfect place to play, picnic, barbecue and even to fish. If you are in Mandurah a visit to this playground is a must and our recommendation is you allocate at least a couple of hours to enjoy it.

There’s also a small sandy beach, perfect for having a splash or throwing in a fishing line.

Caterpillar Park Playground

The Caterpillar Park Playground is definitely one of the most popular playgrounds in Mandurah, not only because it’s enclosed and safe but also because there’s so much to do.

Surrounded by plenty of trees and sails, keeping the area shaded, this is not only a pleasant place for kids to play but also for families to enjoy a picnic or barbecue. There are separate undercover areas with benches, tables and BBQs.

Also known as Milgar Street Reserve, the Caterpillar Playground is easily accessible via Park Road with plenty of parking available. Be wary on weekends though, it is situated next door to the BMX track so it can be a little hard to find parking.
