Find it at: Cowell Foreshore Precinct, Thompson Drive, Cowell

Cowell Foreshore Precinct underwent a $9 million upgrade in 2023 with the addition of an aquatic playground featuring a Splash Park and Water Slides, a Basketball Court, a Jumping Pillow and increased car parking (including long parks) for all those caravanning families!

Cowell is a beautiful coastal town situated on the Franklin Harbour, approximately 490kms (around 5 hours drive) north-west of Adelaide. A popular place for fishing activities due to its sheltered waters of the harbour, Cowell offers so much more than just Oysters and Fish!

The Franklin Cowell Foreshore precinct redevelopment has seen the creation of the Cowell Water Park alongside the Cowell Lions Park. The Precinct includes a free outdoor water play area featuring a splash zone and two water slides. A skate park, Jumping Pillow and full sized Basketball court have been added to the existing playground as well. There is also plenty of lawn for ball games and sheltered areas for picnics, as well as free barbeques!

Whether you are looking for a morning tea or lunch stop on your Eyre Peninsula road trip or you’re staying in the township, this is the perfect place to be on a warm day!

There are toilets onsite, barbecues, shelters and a beautiful large lawn for people to enjoy ball games or a picnic. Add in a basketball court, skate park and splash zone and we are ticking all the playground boxes for this one! Who’s planning a trip to the Eyre Peninsula now!?
