Where: Main St, Hahndorf

Hahndorf is one of the best day trip locations in our fabulous state. Seriously nothing better than a walk along Main Street, popping  into the little shops for a treat or an ice cream, then washing it all down with a litre of beer from a stein and a few kilos of meat (Hahndorf Inn you have my heart….but I digress)

There has always been a couple of small playgrounds in Hahndorf but the recent re-development of the Alec Johnson Park (centre of town on Main Street) has meant there is now something equally as fab for the kids to do on the trip. 

The new playground is fantastic. Lots of families were enjoying the spot during our visit and there was plenty of room and equipment for everyone to use and enjoy. The facilities are not too bad either, with a toilet, some shade from the lovely trees in the area and some shaded seating plus BBQs. Parking is a little dependent on when you go as Hahndorf will either be busier than the Royal Show or you will have the place to yourself.

The under 10 crowd will love this the most, with lots of great creative climbing equipment (the climbing net to the slide was really cool) and lot of swings and smaller equipment to muck around on. We loved the scenery and the nearby fountain, which Mr 6 was disappointed to discover wasn’t a small swimming pool. The little bridge you walk over from Main Street is great if the creek is flowing too…adds to the serenity and all that jazz.
