Brooklyn Drive Reserve Playground

Nature Play, Play, Playgrounds in Adelaide, South

Where: Brooklyn Drive, Hallett Cove

*** March 2021 Update – OPEN! ***

The Brooklyn Drive Reserve playground is open and after rigorous testing by a KiA crew, it has been given the tick of approval. Not a huge space, but a great spot for locals, this timber themed playground has enough to keep most ages entertained while you take 5 during your probably hectic schedule!

There is a swing (plus a toddler swing), as well as monkey bars (to be fair they are fairly low hanging so taller squids may drag their feet a tad) and a climbing tower with slide. Not bad! Chuck in some unique features like 4-square handball court and capture the flag instructions and a mud kitchen!

For the parents, there are no toilets but there is a shaded seating area. No shade over the equipment either so it may get pretty hot as there aren’t many trees either.

Stuck for a bite to eat after your play? We highly recommend the nearby Cafe Rimini at Hallett Cove. Check out all the info here.

  • Where: Nannigai Drive, Hallett Cove Marion Council has done it again with a fabulous new playground down south, opened in mid 2021 at Hallett Cove. This is a fantastic all round community space, complete with toilets, basketball and tennis courts (with soccer goals too), BBQ, sheltered seating, drinking fountains and good parking off the quiet side street. Our crew loved this space, with a fantastic range of equipment which is perfect for the under 10s. Complete with swings, a climbing tower with multiple slides and a xylophone music installation that plays the most amazingly loud and beautiful sounds. The kids will be bashing away at this for ages (do wonder how the neighbours feel about it though!). The playground is right next to some lots of trees, which with the addition of a some little wooden features is quite the place to explore for the little ones. So chuck in the scooter, the balls and some meat for a fab family BBQ, because this one is an absolute ripper.

  • This local playground /park is suitable for a mixture of age groups however the play equipment only caters for toddlers. The equipment features a small swing set including baby swing, 2 small slippery dips , a swinging hammock , climbing area and a couple of small play equipment. Half the area is covered by shade .What is great about this park/reserve is that the play equipment area is fenced off, has a good size grassed area and a half key basketball court. Within this area you also have the use of toilets and BBQ facilities. What I also like about this park is that outside the fenced playground area you also have the use of tennis courts and for the pooch lovers there is a huge dog park /sports field. It even has off street parking. Why not bring the family, put a sausage on the BBQ, have a hit of tennis or try for a slam dunk on the basketball key whilst you also get to keep the pooch happy at the dog park. In need of a coffee on the way you either have OTR service station on the corner  of Diagonal and Oaklands Road ( probably not…

  • A beautiful little spot that is amongst suburbia but will make you feel like you are a million miles away from anyone. We were lucky enough to visit on a sensational sunny Sunday and it was such a relaxing visit. With huge trees (I want to say gum trees but with zero confidence in my tree identifying ability), heaps of grass to run around on, seated shaded area and easy on street parking on the nearby back street. No toilets, but lets just say there are a lot of trees and not many people nearby as Mr 6 tried to explain to me. The playground caters for toddlers with a nice little toddler area and then the older kids have a good sized climbing set up, with some swings also nearby. This is certainly a 'less is more' playground with just enough to keep the kids happy but the relaxing environment more than makes up for it.
