Woodbridge riverside play space

For over a year now, I've been doing support work for a lovely family. I work with a young boy and his grandparents. The other day, I told his nanna about my blog and she started telling me about all these new places she thought I might want to explore. 

It's so nice when people help me out with ideas for the blog.

On a side note, I haven't caught up on sleep from my trip to Melbourne and I'm so tired right now. I apologise if my words aren't so great today. 

So anyways, I went out to a play area called Woodbridge Riverside Play Space. It's a beautiful area made for both children with "abilities and disabilities". It's so great because there is some play equipment for children in wheelchairs and so my client was able to play too. 

Today was the opening day for the play area and it was so lovely to see all the children of different abilities interacting and socialising. 

The Swan River runs down right next to the play area and so the view was just lovely. 

The highlight of my day today was seeing children getting in touch with nature. While I was having lunch by the river today, I saw two young girls with nets down by the river bank catching tad poles. It was a sight straight from a painting of something. 

I also saw kids fishing, riding bikes, playing soccer and feeding ducks. It was so refreshing seeing these kids playing outdoors. With kids spending most of their time with electronics and what not, I had forgotten that there was anything else. What I saw was good old fashioned play. It just made me so happy.

  1. Wow, this looks like such an amazing place. In addition to that, I love how the place looks really Australian. I don't know if that makes sense, but to me theres this aussie spirit in the photos with the river running through.
