Where: Alison Avenue, Marion

Not a bad little backstreet playground this one, which is a good spot for the locals and if you happen to be in the area and the kids need to run off some steam. It has a picnic chair, table and some lovely grassed space which was really nice on the sunny day we visited. Plenty of shade from the trees and the playground has a good variety of equipment to cater for the under 10s mainly. With a nice big twirly slide, swings, lots of monkey bars and other climbing sets to muck around on. The flying fox was a hit with our crew too as was the purple climbing thingy which we couldn’t settle on a name for…but it was fun!

No toilets, no water fountains, no BBQs sadly, but parking is not an issue here. It isn’t fenced either but it is set quite a way off the road so safety wise it isn’t much of an issue there either. Our little crew had a great time here so be sure to check it out if you are in the area.

Oh it also backs onto Westminster School, so be sure to check out the sheep!!
