Driving down Albert St I had to have an extra closer look to find this quaint little park as it is placed behind a gorgeous white picket fence. As you open the gate you automatically get a magical feel as if you are entering a secret garden. With lots of grassed area at the front for either a picnic or games the area is surrounded by shrubs and trees.

At the end of the grassed area you will find the play equipment suitable for toddlers and early school aged kids. It features a swing set with baby swing, slippery dip, a bridge and lots of climbing frames. I love the general store with its own “EFTPOS’ machine to allow for some shopping role play (so up with the times)

A “little” find the Aussie Animals and Boomerang game is positioned at the top of the climbing equipment as extra entertainment and learning for the kids and lets not forget the cute ladybird bouncy piece for the little ones that can be found in the bark chips.

Whilst this park doesn’t have shade cloth over the equipment the tall trees provide some shade from the sun.

No toilets are located at this little local park.

Why not make a morning or afternoon of it and visit the local Victoria Park facilities that include areas for bike riding , skateboarding , scooters etc, visit the The Velo Precint or Park 16 Kiosk and then head over to Albert St Reserve for another play.

Love this gorgeous little playground vibe especially the feeling when you enter the gates from the white picket fence.

Just a little note to be aware of the parking restrictions on Albert St.

  • Albert Greenfields Reserve is a nice little park nestled in Ridleyton just off Torrens Road. This playground is suitable for toddlers and above. There is a good variety of equipment, half court basketball court and lots of grass for the kids to run around, dance on or kick the ball. We grabbed a coffee from the nearby coffee shop, sat under a tree on a park bench and enjoyed watching the kids play. The equipment features lots of climbing or swinging pieces ranging from monkey bars, to a metal ropes course, mini rock climbing and different staircases suited to different ages. It features two slippery dips. One for the toddlers to easy access, and one bright blue curly slide. There is a nest swing along with another swing set that caters for the little ones with a baby seat. We loved the spinning pole along with the mini sea-saw. Albert Greenfields is a quaint little playground that is half fenced protecting the kids from the main road. It has shade over the next swings. Car park, BBQ area and toilets available. A few local coffee shops or bakeries near by. The reserve also has a separate, fully fenced dog park…

  • 'Dwight Reserve', located on the corner of Yorktown and Adams Rd is a nice little spot for the locals with some cool equipment and a HEAP of space. It has a car park, shaded seating, park benches, rubbish bins and a large oval nearby (bring the footy or a kite!). It doesn't have secure fencing or toilets but is great for a quick play after school or a picnic on the weekend. I do love the multi-ring basketball bucket...sort of reminds me of Greenhills at Victor Harbor and beating my brother when we were kids! So make sure you pack the car with ALL of the balls, kites and frizbees.

  • Located on Montrose St at Ferryden Park, this little spot has just had $155, 000 spent on an upgrade which is now open!
