The Best of SA’s Playgrounds
26th July 2017
If, like us, you love getting out and about on your weekends and exploring some of SA’s best.. try visiting one of these playgrounds this weekend with the family!
- St Kilda Adventure Playground
A playground like no other! The St Kilda Adventure Playground has always been a family favourite for all. In recent years the playground has undergone a massive $3.5 million renewal, making it better than ever! The playground offers so many attractions including a huge castle with slides and a draw bridge, a bouncy boomerang, flying fox, pirate ship, a large volcano with multiple slides, swings, a basketball court and more! It’s so good you’ll want to spend the whole day there, so pack up your picnic baskets or your BBQ lunch and take the whole family for a day of fun!
Where: 470 St Kilda Road, St Kilda SA
- Glenelg Foreshore
In the popular seaside town of Glenelg, the foreshore has been transformed into an epic foreshore playground, giving new life to the area. Overlooking the beach, the playspace blends into the foreshore beautifully with plenty of sand to run around on and tall-standing palms trees providing plenty of shade. Find your children hanging like monkeys on the multiple climbing frames to bouncing between the in-ground trampolines or testing their balance on the wobbly rope bridges. For the older children, the climbing dome and adjoining rope tunnel are a whole lot of fun! The playspace is great for children of all ages, and on warmer days there’s even a lagoon to splash around in. Check it out for yourself next time you’re down the bay!
Where: Glenelg Foreshore, just near the Town Hall and Moseley Square, Glenelg SA
- Nature’s Playground – Adelaide Zoo
A trip to the Adelaide Zoo is always fun but the new Nature’s Playground is well worth the visit in itself! The nature inspired play equipment is suitable for all playing abilities and is designed to let children’s’ imaginations run wild. Built on nature play principles, the playground will stimulate all the senses through climbing structures, water features, a natural creek bed and aerial walkways. The Nature’s Playground doesn’t shy away from traditional playgrounds, also offering big slippery slides, swings and in ground trampolines too. Nature’s Playground is free to use when you purchase a ticket to Adelaide Zoo.
