This small playground is located along High Street, Marong and features a wave slide, a basket swing and a bench seat. 

There's a pioneer memorial alongside the play area, which consists of a wishing well and two stone cairns. One cairn is topped with a plaque which displays the following text:

A tribute to the early settlers of Marong 1861

The wishing well represents the original well located in High Street which supplied water for the Marong township.

Tidy Town Committee. 1988-89.

A second small cairn has a plaque affixed to its front, which displays the following text:

Lover of Birds, 
Melodies and Laughter
Erected For Friends

The wishing well is constructed of stone and has a wooden roof.

Across the road and down a little, you can see Marong's two interesting historic ploughs on display within the road's central dividing strip. 

The beautiful Malone Park is also located in Marong.
