Play Central, Port Melbourne

On Saturday, we had the opportunity to attend a birthday celebration at Play Central in Port Melbourne. We arrived at around 12:30PM and found an off street parking. There are limited parking spaces provided for Play Central customers but during weekends, you can easily spot parking spaces around the area.

The best thing about Play Central is having two separate areas for playing. Upon entrance, there is a space for little ones. There is an allocated room for musical toys for infants, kitchen area for toddlers, veterinary clinic, lego blocks and grocery for pre-schoolers. But of course they can swap around and everything is for all to share.


If your kids are more into running, sliding, driving and jumping, they can enjoy all these on the other side:

I took these photos while it wasn’t too busy yet, as you can see the place is so clean and well maintained. They also have lovely and friendly staff at the reception and café.

The party room was big enough to accommodate 2 sets of rectangular tables maybe up to 20 kids or more. Four guests tables were reserved right outside the party room, each table served with finger food platters – sandwiches, baked wedges, assorted fruits and pies. Kids were served with fairy bread, hotdogs, chips and chicken nuggets. Just like in other playcentres, all drinks were on tab. One thing that really stood out that day is how organized the staff were. They were attending to 3 different party rooms but I did not see any exhaustion or rolling of eyes from the staff, just pure professionalism.

For mums out there who might be looking for a potential party venue, you might want to consider Play Central located at 27-53 Crockford Street, Port Melbourne. xoxo
