Melbourne’s latest playground...

Booran Reserve Playground
Booran Road, Caulfield
(20mins from the Island of 3121!!)

It has something for children of all ages, toddlers to teens. Huge water play area, flying fox, sand pits, the biggest climbing web up to a huge tube slide, tunnels, swings, slides, tennis rebound wall, cricket stump wall, a basketball half court hoop (so bring your own gear), and so much more! It has beautiful tables and bbq areas as well as open grass picnic areas, sunshades and toilets. It is still very busy as it’s relatively new but seems to handle a crowd well. We went late afternoon on a Saturday and crowds eased around 4.30pm. My 8 & 9YO think it’s better than Royal Park Playground!!! www.playgroundfinder.com


Your toy returns
Richmond Book Library is no longer able to accept toy returns.
Please ensure your toys are returned to the Toy Library Main Branch or Finbar Branch during opening hours. You can renew online if you cannot get in by due date or call Ayse or Jaime to discuss. The Richmond Book Library is not part of the Richmond Toy Library but we do love sharing our space with them so please ensure our neighbours don’t have our toys left in their space.  Please treat Finbar with the same respect and return toys to the Toy Library not Finbar House office. Thank you.
