The Diamond Creek Regional Playspace is a fantastic nature-themed playspace for all ages and abilities, that works closely with the natural, parkland environment. It is located at Diamond Creek Reserve, near Marngrook Oval, the Diamond Creek Bowls Club and the off-leash dog park.
There is a dedicated junior and senior play areas, flying foxes, nature play and cubby area, picnic shelters, seats, tables, barbecues, and public toilets.
The playspace is easily accessible from the Diamond Creek Trail, and the car park behind the Bowls Club.
Alongside the playspace will be the Tram Café, operated by the Rotary Club of Diamond Creek, and set in an historic W-class tram, one of 130 retired Yarra trams given a new home through the State Government.
The labyrinth is a simple, non-intrusive contemplative pathway set in the landscape used for walking exercise and meditation. The concept is often described as a stress management space and a spiritual place to relax. Walking the labyrinth is a detour from the everyday path of individual lives and an opportunity to slow down and reflect in the natural bushland setting of Diamond Creek.
