The Children’s Playground is located on the south side of the Grey
Street herbaceous border. Originally with a four and half metre giraffe,
which has a swings hanging from its ears and a sand pit.
In 2004 the playground was revamped and a 20 tonne sculpted concrete dragon became the centrepiece. The dragon is seven metres long and three metres high, designed by the City of Melbourne and sculpted by Martin Moore, Gary Tippet and Aaron Beaucaire from Mothers Art. It was built using a steel frame with a reinforced concrete base.
Children are be able to climb up its neck, slide down its tail, sit on its head or crawl under its belly.
