Many shopping plazas in Melbourne have a play area (for free) for children to run around and stretch their legs. Often, they are found near food courts, but they can be located in other parts of the plaza.
Westfield Fountain Gate, Narre Warren, has a great children's play area
Have you been to a children's play area inside a shopping center which has become a family favourite? Where is it? Do you visit it often?
Usually the shopping center play areas are suitable for children up to the age of 6, maybe 7. Since my children are getting older, they are no longer interested. But they have enjoyed the play areas in Fountain Gate for a long time. The Fountain Gate Food Court play area has undergone a recent upgrade and it is gorgeous.
