Set among the existing trees, along with some new ones, the city council have done an amazing job with revamping the existing East Terrace Glover Playgroung also known as Park 15. We love that this playground caters to a variety of ages and has something for everyone. The main stage of the play space are the wooden houses located in the middle of the playground.

These are awesome cubby houses on stilts that cater for different ages as each has its only challenges and climbing obstacles, ranging from ladders to climbing nets to stairs. The catch is you need to climb something to use either the tubular slide or the dual slide so smaller kids will need constant help.

Connected by a rope bridge, the cubby houses are also great for imaginative play. Surrounding the wooden cubbies you will find lots of green mounds for the kids to run up or around along with inground trampolines scattered around the playground for the kids to enjoy. The park features a nest swing along with another swing set that features a baby swing.

As the kids continue to move around they park they will also find a LOT of other climbing equipment and lots of spiderwebs to weave in and out of. There are also lots of other pieces of equipment for climbing on scattered around the grounds more suitable for the younger ones. On the far side of the playground there are additional mounds in the ground for kids to weave in and out of or use their imagination with play and games. You will just need to keep a close eye out as the toilet block is located in the centre of the playground so you cant see both sides of the play areas.

The playground has toilets, it is fenced off on the road sides and has BBQ facilities with picnic tables.

The only down side is that there is no shade on the actual play equipment, but there are plenty of trees in the lower half of the playground. As the new trees grow this will help a little in the actual play equipment area.

There are lots of coffee shops and cafes along Hutt St for food and drinks. Please be mindful that CBC school is located across the road from this playground and uses the space for recess and lunch play. It can be quite busy during these times especially for the little ones as this is quite a spread out playground.

  • Where: Hartley Road Flinders Park A nice little playground with enough equipment choice to keep the kids busy for a few minutes at least! It could do with a few extra features as it has no fence, no shade (apart from some nearby trees), no water fountains, no seating and no BBQ. The toilet is only at the nearby footy club, so if that is closed then you are out of luck too. But it does have a cool little wooden boat, a huge nest swing and a heap of regular swings (including one for the toddlers). A good spot for the locals and with the nearby oval, plenty of space for everyone to run around (sadly due to the lack of seating parents will also have to run around as well. Soz.) Hartley Road is fairly busy so keep a watchful eye on the kids at this one.

  • The Bridge Terrace Playground in Victor Harbor is close to the beach and skate park, along the foreshore to the left of the main jetty. It's more of an adventure-style playground with equipment ideal for kids who love climbing so if you take younger children who are fearless then be prepared to climb up and get them down as some parts of the equipment are quite high! Some of the features include: climbing and balancing equipmentflying foxgreat monkey bar equipmentwalking/bike path close by leads you back to the main part of Victor Harbor (which is only a few minutes walk)close to the skatepark and beachthis park is not shaded or fencedshort walk to the main cafe area and toilets Bridge Street surfing fun!This swing is AWESOME! The kids will love it.

  • Plympton Oval playground that was upgraded in 2015. The playground is fairly small but has equipment that kids ranging from toddlers up to primary kids will enjoy. Smaller kids and toddlers will like the junior climbing structure, slide and swings while the older kids, especially climbers will love the tricky monkey bars, spinning bars and climbing nets. Or if your kids are up for the challenge, can they get to the top of the shade sale pole like Finn did? There are some big logs surrounding the equipment that are fun for balancing on. The playground is located within the oval grounds and although the playground on it's own isn't fully fenced, the oval as a whole is so you don't have to worry about kids escaping onto the road. It's a great place for a big run around, kick the footy or play some cricket in the nets. There are shade sails over the equipment, accessible pathways and picnic table and seating. No BBQsPublic toilets are located at the oval club rooms. Images credit Close to the tram and Mike Turtur bikewayMilton Ave, Plympton Park Thanks for the photos Sue!
