Sports and Outdoor Lifestyle
Enter Mayfield through the three hectare natural woodlands entrance, past eucalyptus, English oak and native healthy woodlands and know you have arrived in a very special place.
Along with preserving this tract of bushland, native vegetation will feature strongly throughout Mayfield with inspiration drawn from the adjacent Royal Botanic Gardens.
Cranbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens are made up of 360 hectares of garden and open space including walking trails, picnic and barbecue areas, a visitor centre and café. Green thumbs will also enjoy attending their horticulture events and information sessions held throughout the year.
Children’s Nature Garden
Mayfield has recently opened its brand new Children’s Nature Garden which is nestled within the three hectare natural woodland reserve and forms the natural entry to the community. It is home to a range of interactive play equipment specifically designed to engage with children and encourage sensory and natural play.
The hub of the play space is formed by a bird’s nest climbing structure which is centred around an old oak tree, kids can be brave and ride down the fireman’s pole, slide down the slide or swing between the monkey bars. Explore the garden by following the sensory walk that weaves in and out of the native plants and fauna, take in and admire the sculptural elements or become an explorer and hop between the balance beams and dig your way through the sand pit. Complete with a BBQ area, picnic tables and shelter and free public WiFi, Mayfield’s Children’s Nature Garden is the perfect destination that can be enjoyed by all the family.
