Talaskia Reserve, Ferntree Gully

By Melissa Meehan

It’s right in the heart of the Angliss medical precinct, but you’d be forgiven for not realising what a gem of a playground Talaskia Reserve is.The Upper Ferntree Gully playground is smack bang between the Angliss Hospital, a large oval and an open area that is perfect for basketball, or riding your bike or scooter.

Great for all ages.

The “basketball court“, beside the playground, has so many different lines on it – I’m sure some of the parents would be sent back to the days when they fought to win Four Square championships.

great bike and scooter track on the basketball courts next door.

With two slides, two swings, seesaws and a cool scooter track next door – it’s a great park for everyone! It’s even toddler friendly.

TIP: It’s next to Angliss Hospital and a primary school – so parking could be an issue some days. But we had no issues but around drop off and pick up it could be a little busy.
