Romsey Ecotherapy Park

We are spoilt for choice in the Macedon Ranges in terms of parks. Unfortunately if we don’t live close to some of them, we are not always aware that they are there! Romsey Ecotherapy Park, is a perfect example of this.

What: The Romsey Ecotherapy Park is literally one of the town’s best kept secrets. We would not have known it was there except that a local told us about it. The centre of the park is overlooked by a magnificent tree with beautiful gnarled branches. The dappled sunlight filters through the greenery as you play, explore or relax. The park is beautifully landscaped, primarily with wooden materials. Your child will love following the tree stump stepping stones or balancing along the succession of planks. There is also an excellent flying fox for bigger kids and ropes course. The new additions to the park include a beautifully carved storytime chair and stools, a water play area and a walkway past some interactive art installations. There is so much to see and do!

Where: The Romsey Ecotherapy Park curls around the Cobaw Community Health Centre on Main Street. The park overlooks the river and is across the road from the Lions Park.

The best bit: My kids love the flying fox.

Picnic or cafe? There is a sheltered barbecue area with tables and benches. There are no cafes close by but stop the car a little earlier on Main Street to visit the lovely Verdure cafe for a babycino and a toasted sandwich.

Toilets close by? There are toilets attached to Cobaw Community Health Centre building on the roadside of the park.

Make a day of it: You might like to time your visit with the monthly farmers’ market in neighbouring Lancefield on the fourth Saturday of the month, or the Romsey Lions Market on the second Sunday of the month.
