The playground was opened as part of the â€˜Destination Rosebudâ€™ initiative, a project designed to invigorate the local Rosebud area with investment in new facilities that will create jobs and draw in visitors to the area.
The playground is one of six project elements put together to help provide a boost to the Rosebud community, with the playground designed to appeal to the younger generation of the area.

So much to see, so much to do
Activities and attractions abound across the Mornington Peninsula. And you can discover them all…
There is a lot to discover about the Mornington Peninsula. So many places to go, and things to see and do. Drive along our coastlines with their waterfront restaurants, cafes and lavish cliff-top mansions and you can see why the Mornington Peninsula has long been a favourite destination for lazy beachside holidays that come with green hinterlands and wild ocean beaches on the side.
But if you haven’t visited us for some time, you’ll be very pleasantly surprised at how the Peninsula has completely redefined the traditional beachside holiday.Â If you’ve never visited us, you’re in for some delightful surprises.Â Cliff-top mansions, lively local markets, grand historic gardens and galleries spilling over with art and antiques create colour and life around our seaside villages.Â Our bays tempt you with every type of water sport you could wish for, from sailing to scuba diving, fishing to sea kayaking.
Hinterland gardens and outdoor attractions:Â Come and see a fragrant lavender farm, meandering hedge mazes and gardens with towering trees from the 1860s. How do you like your adventure? Ride, slide, zip or wander through adventure gardens, beautiful landscapes, or stroll along boardwalks through wetlands.
Diving, fishing, swimming with dolphins:Â Try something youâ€™ve never done before, like learning to scuba dive or swimming with dolphins. You can also go surfing, sailing or stand up paddle boarding, or just cast a lazy fishing line from a pier or book a fishing charter.
Wonderful food and wine:Â Just drive through our region, and the Peninsula’s love affair with wine, fresh produce, seafood and bountiful food on the table is quickly revealed. Taste it, sip it, pick it, catch it, take it home with you. But first, find out more about the Wine Food Farmgate Trail.
