In the park in front of the Adelaide Aquatic Centre you’ll find Bush Magic Playground.

What I like about this playground

  • Lots of parking available either on the street or in the Adelaide Aquatic Centre Carpark
  • Range of park equipment suitable for both really young ones and older kids. It has a maze, a pommel see saw (we loved this), slides, monkey bars, rope bridge, sand play area, swings, tunnels
  • Low monkey bars! Perfect for adventurous ones like mine to have a go on their own without help from Mum! (and without having to worry about a fall from up high
  • Cafe near by (in the Aquatic Centre) as well as toilet facilities. Nice ones. The cafe is also open early from 6am until as late as 7pm
  • Well maintained. It’s not the newest park on the block but it was nice and clean and the equipment was well maintained.
  • Liberty Swing (you’ll need to grab the key from the Aquatic Centre staff to use it)
  • Fully fenced! YAY no run aways
  • A small grassy hill perfect for roly poly’s, or a picnic rug
  • BBQ facilities and a few different picnic tables available good option for a birthday party
  • Lots of spots for Mums and Dads to sit, there were a few picnic tables/benches scattered around both inside and outside of the fenced area, as well as a large undercover area perfect for a mid play snack.

What we thought could be better

  • We visited in winter where shade wasn’t an issue but I think it could get quite hot in the middle of summer. The adjacent park is quite shaded but the actual playground area itself could do with a shade sail.
