Find it at: Corner or Elizabeth Street and Day Terrace, Croydon
This playground is a little gem. It has a bbq area and grassed area for lounging around or a small picnic, there’s also some shelter and benches.
There are shops and cafe’s nearby,
but toilets are not within the playground. ** UPDATE ** This park now has toilet facilities!
The kids will love this park as it’s right next to the Croydon Train Station and the kids can view the train coming and going frequently- right up close!
Don’t worry- the playground is fully fenced!
It has a separate toddler park and a park for older children connected by a gate. There’s also basketball rings if you’re keen to get your kids into the Adelaide 36ers team!
Things to know:
– parking on the street, not always a lot of parking available close by
– the basketball ring was missing so only the backboard remained when I visited last week (but at least that means you can’t miss a shot!)
My favourite local: The Queen Street Cafe and the Red Door Bakery of course! But there’s loads of other places to visit too. A great street in a quaint suburb, Queen Street also has some funky little furniture places, pilates studio and some really great vintage clothing stores. I particularly like One Small Room, which has some really cool retro furniture.
