What a great adventure! Blackwood Forest Recreation Park is a fantastic suburban park located in Hawthorndene, just 12 kms from the Adelaide CBD

The most striking feature of this park is the huge pine forest that is a great place for kids to explore. Lots of little cubbies and huts throughout to climb in and on, swings, creek, blackberries, mud and trees to climb too! Surprises around every corner.

It’s a popular spot for walking, jogging, horse riding, bike riding and off leash dogs so you’ll need to share the space with others.

There are quite a few nearby cafes and bakeries if you want to stop and get a cuppa or snack on the way and be aware there are no toilets so make sure you take care of business before you arrive.
