We have just returned from a lovely morning at Footscray Meadows also known as 5 Arches. We took a leisurely stroll along the river Cray watching all the dogs taking a dip in the shallow clear waters. We soon came to a footbridge, which took us to a super children’s play area with a separate section for ball games with basket ball nets. It looked like it was very new and had some really fun equipment. The children especially liked the huge tyre swing and my 2 year old son loved the toddlers climbing frame. The Park really is quite beautiful and peaceful, we walked back on the other side of the river through the woods and eventually reached 5 Arches Bridge where the river turned into a stunning lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning and the children were more than warn out when we got back to the car! Highly recommended!
