Find it at: Crown Terrace, Royal Park

What a fantastic spot this is, tucked away in the very quiet back streets of Royal Park. Heaps of space, including the nearby soccer oval and surrounding beautiful grassed area, this is such a good family playground.

With heaps of off road parking, you will find fantastic equipment to suit all ages including a massive rock climbing tube slide tower and rope climb aparatus for the older ninjas. Then for the younger ones there is a couple of swing sets and a smaller slide set which is the perfect toddler height. Plenty of natural shade as well as under cover seating as well as some nature play logs to try out too. No toilets that we could see which is a shame. The public tennis court is right next to the playground as well in case you fancy a hit.

A really beautiful playground this one which your kids will love!

  • Find it at: First Ave, Ascot Park City of Marion have upgraded this reserve (August 2019) with new play equipment, a refurbished shelter with BBQ and a gorgeous picnic table that reminded our kids of the Three Little Bears table. This is a quaint little park with some nice nature themed equipment.Lots of logs to climb on and in, stepping stones, climbing poles and a set of swings. It's not fully fenced but located on a fairly quiet street and fenced on three of the sides so a good one for little kids who like to climb and explore without having to worry about them running off. There's a nice green lawn to sit or play and we love the new colourful mural on the back fence. Downside there are no toilets, and no shade. Image credit: City of Marion FB Page

  • Find it at: Yorktown Road, Elizabeth Park 'Dwight Reserve', located on the corner of Yorktown and Adams Rd is a nice little spot for the locals with some cool equipment and a HEAP of space. It has a car park, shaded seating, park benches, rubbish bins and a large oval nearby (bring the footy or a kite!). It doesn't have secure fencing or toilets but is great for a quick play after school or a picnic on the weekend. I do love the multi-ring basketball bucket...sort of reminds me of Greenhills at Victor Harbor and beating my brother when we were kids! So make sure you pack the car with ALL of the balls, kites and frizbees.
