What a beautiful playground for kids of all ages! Renovated back in late 2012, the Bonython Park Playground has a some very cool features not found in the typical suburban park. Some of the best equipment includes two 25m flying fox lines fun for kids of all ages and an extensive water play area complete with pumps, gates and a watermill. Kids love playing and experimenting with water and this is a safe and interactive water zone to suits kids as young as 1, while still entertaining the older ones.

The huge ‘mouse wheel’ can accommodate numerous energetic kids, there is a variety of swings and we love the wheelchair accessible carousel, water play troughs, communication boards and a nest swing that make this park a good one for kids of all ages and abilities. Mum and dad can enjoy plenty of shade and seating. The kiosk is currently not opened – we suggest grabbing coffee from nearby Plant 4 Bowden on the way or Mister Sunshines nearby on George Street. Neither are walking distance unfortunately.

The playground also backs onto a well kept oval for plenty of open space, has toilet and bbq facilities and a kiosk.

Worth noting it is not a fenced playground an that it is situated on linear path and the Torrens River plus 200 m adjacent are duck ponds. Little ones definately need eyes kept on them for this reason.

To top off a great park, you will see city trains cross a small river bridge a very short walk away and you are situated under the flight path so it makes for some excellent plane spotting, depending what direction the air traffic are taking off / landing on the day that you visit.

Toilets, bins, bbq’s and some natural shade can all be found at this play ground. Oh don’t forget to pop into the brand spanking new cafe, which opened in Easter 2021. A perfect spot for an ice block on a hot day.

Opening Hours: Bonython Park Playground open all hours, parking gates close at 6pm.

  • /pleɪ/ verb: engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose.

  • So we know that lots of families have kids ranging from toddler to teens so we've tried to find some great playgrounds we think your older kids will enjoy, while still offering some play space for younger children. For those of you with only older children, these playground spaces are still great and you just get the added bonus of sitting down instead of chasing a toddler around trying to put their hat on!

No toilets or shade Thanks to Amy for this playground review 36 Seavington Road, Elizabeth Park
