If you live near or visit Plympton Park reserves and love a playground, then this is for you! Playground improvements are planned for Elizabeth Ryan Reserve playground in Plympton Park, including the addition of open space through the purchase of the block next door on Herbert Street! This land was purchased in partnership with the State Government. We think the kids are going to love this!

A concept plan has been drawn up and it looks like it will be another fabulous playground from the City of Marion.

Key elements of the design include:

  • A new playground and play equipment
  • Lawned area for recreation
  • New seating
  • New paths
  • Historical signage (paying homage to the playgrounds namesake, Elizabeth Ryan)

Couple of more options are being considered so we look forward to watching this come together.

  • Smaller budget community skate park, some interesting features enjoyed by my younger boys on BMX and scooter but the transitions on the northern wallride feature weren’t great. Roll in, quarter pipe, little button mushroom and raised box were interesting. Situated around a well manicured football oval. Playground adjacent with climbing equipment, a small flying fox, swings, picnic table & clean toilets. Fairly quiet.

  • Image credit: City of Playford This park is part of a nature reserve, with a small playground that includes a slide, spinner, swings and some cool climbing/balancing equipment Image credit: City of Playford It's a great area for a run around, kick of the ball or somewhere you can sit with the dog (on leash) while the kids have a play Image credit: City of Playford There's not many facilities around though, a bench seat and a rubbish bin is about it. No toilets or shade Thanks to Amy for this playground review 36 Seavington Road, Elizabeth Park[wpgmza id="138" cat="1" marker="559" zoom="16"]

  • 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…
