Where: Central Avenue, Hallett Cove

A fabulous new addition to the City of Marion’s range of playspaces opened up in March 2021, with the brand spanking new playground at Central Avenue Reserve. Using the site’s slope to the fullest advantage, the highlight here is a super quick flying fox which takes kids (and parents!) from the rock-climb inspired slide playground and basketball court, right down to the sand play and shelter area at the bottom.

The climbing playground is a really unique set up here too, with a variety of climbing challenges for the older kids (but it isn’t too high to rule out the younger ninja’s either. Make it to the top and the kids will travel to the bottom in a nice little tube slide. Great stuff!

There is plenty of lawn surrounded by trees and you will find balance beams and wooden log steppers throughout he reserve too, as well as a swing set including baby swing. Chuck in some shaded areas and a brand new BBQ and this is a fantastic facility for the locals. No toilets at this one sadly.
