The incredible new nature play space at Bowman Park Crystal Brook is now open! The photos below just look incredible and we can’t wait to head up and have a look on our next road trip.

Designed and built by the uber talented folks at Climbing Tree Consultancy (Simon has been promising to show us his shed…which we expect will be EPIC!), built in only 9 weeks (meanwhile painting a toy box has taken me about 3 months so far….) after an idea 3 years in the design and planning, the result is a stunning play space located along the edge of a creek with majestic river redgums and an abundance of local wildlife.

What we love is how the whole community has come together for this, with talented local artists and builders providing their amazing skills but also rocks, machinery and other little gems you will find during your adventures.

We think they have absolutely nailed it. Just a short drive off the main Highway to Port Pirie and Port Augusta, this is the NEW detour that you just have to take!

  • *** JUNE 2020 UPDATE *** A new amazing ALL INCLUSIVE piece of play equipment is on its way to the Waikerie Water & Nature Play Park.The generosity of the Rotary Club Of Waikerie just keeps on coming. It has taken twelve months of planning and design but they are happy to announce the local Rotary Club will once again be making the park bigger & better. This piece is a carousel that will enable equal access for wheelchairs & able bodied users alike. Lots of fun for everyone!  Check out the pic below.

  • Its Aberfoyle Park's turn for a new Nature themed playground! There’s been some controversy around the newly re-vamped Thalassa Park Playground in Aberfoyle Park.  Many residents to the area haven’t been impressed by the new nature themed playground, feeling that a lot has been missed in the $320,000 improvements.  Being locals we had to go and check it out for ourselves and here’s our findings. Its the ideal family park Compared to the old playground my two little park lovers, and I, think that the upgrade is simply fantastic and we all give it two thumbs up! The new and contemporary equipment includes a timber climbing structure with netting, a basket swing, a large enclosed embankment slide and a shaded big bird platform with a double slide and rope nest.  There’s wooden seating areas for the adults to watch their little ones play (if they let you sit down and relax that is!) All set out in a spacious setting. The lack of the flying fox and swing set was a slight disappointment, more so for the older kids, and the metal slides did worry me with our Adelaide heat. But all-in-all it really is a great and well-designed playground…

  • A brand new $1million dollar playground has just opened in Two Wells! Near the Eden Residential Estate, the new playground is another nature play themed play space and made from all natural materials. The park itself is quite small but there's lots of balancing logs and beams, climbing nets, a nest swing, and a great hill slide that little sliders will love. There's an undercover picnic area with BBQ, making this a great spot for a birthday party or picnic lunch. Currently no toilets or shade over the playground.
