Dunstan Adventure Playground St Peters

East, Outdoor, Play, Playgrounds in Adelaide

Where: Winchester Street, St Peters

The Dunstan Adventure Playground is full of excellent equipment for adventurous kids. Some of the equipment is aimed at older children though, so your kids will need to feel pretty confident in their balance with some of the activities available in the playground. For the younger kids there’s still the normal climbing equipment, a smaller slide, swings and monkey bars.

Things to try include:

  • A super-sized slide (which can get pretty hot so beware the burned bottom on a hot day!)
  • A suspended wobble footbridge
  • A flying fox

The playground is in a super location, right on a hill along the Linear Park trail, next to the River Torrens. Of course, this means you will have to be more careful when supervising as there is water close by. The park does offer some shady spots, grassed area, benches and picnic area. It’s also close to the O-Bahn rail for those bus/train obsessed children! Feeding the ducks on the Torrens is also an option.

Things to know:

  • Slide can get hot on a hot day
  • Careful supervision near the river needed
  • NO  toilet facilities here.

  • Located within Belair National Park and surrounded by 800 hectares of beautiful bush this playground is an oldie, but a goodie! These photos bring back so many memories for us. Can anyone else remember school excursions here in the 80s and eating massive bush biscuits? Sitting in the huge concrete tunnels and then scurrying away trying to hide from your friends. Belair National Park sells itself. An iconic spot in Adelaide with beautiful natural scenery, fantastic facilities scattered throughout to suit whatever occasion you are after. If you haven't visited the adventure playground in a few years, bring your kids and spend the day. They will love the open space, the iconic huge concrete tubes, wooden fort and playground equipment. It has all you need in a playground too. Toilets, shelter, BBQ and parking. Check out the national park here for all the park entry details.

  • TTG Council just received news that the State Government would contribute $750,000 to the $1.5 million project at Golden Fields, Golden Grove. Golden Fields was established as part of the Golden Grove Development in the late 1980s. For the past 26 years the City of Tea Tree Gully has gradually developed this reserve into a highly utilised Regional Reserve. The new adventure playspace will be built in the lower section of the reserve and provide unique play opportunities for children aged 7 to 14 years. The development will also include an accessible toilet, street and park furniture, additional plantings, a car park for daytime use, and an access road. How good does it sound. We cannot wait! It’s anticipated that construction of the new playspace will commence in February 2022.
