Fern Avenue Reserve Fullarton

Adelaide Older Kids Playgrounds, Nature Play, Play, South

Where: Fern Avenue, Fullarton

The 2019 upgrade to Fern Ave Reserve in Fullarton has made this lovely, fully-fenced playground even better.

The new playspace has a nature play feel with lots of natural elements, sandpit, jumping logs and more. There are a number of climbing areas for kids from toddler to middle primary ages, plus a little slide with cubby above. Kids (& adults!) of all ages love the best swing and I’ll admit I love to have a rest on there while my kids play!!

Did we mention it is also fully fenced! For a little back street, suburban playground, this is a fantastic little spot for the locals.

Along with the play equipment, Fern Ave Reserve has a lovely large grasses area which is great for kicking the ball around. There is a table and bbq area which is mostly covered and the whole reserve is fully fenced for peace of mind. With lots of trees and shrubs around the outside, a water bubbler and even some bird boxes (currently home to some galahs!) this is a great local park. Unfortunately there are no toilets but it’s close to Hark Coffee Roasters and the awesome Windsor Meats butchers if you’re in the area!

  • Where: Central Avenue, Hallett Cove A fabulous new addition to the City of Marion's range of playspaces opened up in March 2021, with the brand spanking new playground at Central Avenue Reserve. Using the site's slope to the fullest advantage, the highlight here is a super quick flying fox which takes kids (and parents!) from the rock-climb inspired slide playground and basketball court, right down to the sand play and shelter area at the bottom. The climbing playground is a really unique set up here too, with a variety of climbing challenges for the older kids (but it isn't too high to rule out the younger ninja's either. Make it to the top and the kids will travel to the bottom in a nice little tube slide. Great stuff! There is plenty of lawn surrounded by trees and you will find balance beams and wooden log steppers throughout he reserve too, as well as a swing set including baby swing. Chuck in some shaded areas and a brand new BBQ and this is a fantastic facility for the locals. No toilets at this one sadly.

  • This recently upgraded playground at Montreal Avenue Reserve in Novar Gardens has some great little play pieces for toddler and early school aged kids. It has lots of bright colours, so its hard not to miss it when you arrive. With lots of grass, and some soft landings in the right places, this is great play space for the younger kids The playground features some good climbing pieces more suitable to the younger ages and a dual slippery dip that can be accessed by a bridge and is easy to teach the little ones to walk over the bridge. It has a small spider web climbing frame along with a mini rock climb wall. Other than the slide the most popular piece for us was the nest and toddler swing. The playground also features a bouncy animal along with a bright yellow sea saw. It has a little "shop" nestled under the slides which was serving up delicious coffee and cake, which only cost me a few bark chips! Great little space for imaginative play. Montreal Avenue Reserve is surrounded with trees so another fab area for the kids to play amongst and HEAPS of space to kick a ball…

  • Where: Yanyarrie Avenue, Edwardstown A beautiful brand new playground opened in May 2021, nestled snugly in the backstreets of Edwardstown, you will find City of Marion designed (Talented Jason Avery at work here again) ripping spot to relax and take a moment out of your busy day. With a huge nest swing, a really cool climbing boulder and some in-ground tramps, you won't find a tremendous amount of equipment, but what they have done is create a relaxing and peaceful space for local parents to unwind and let their little crew run or scoot (neat little bike track path winds throughout the playground too) around. It isn't fully fenced, but the side street is relatively quiet. Throw in a basketball court, water fountain and a lovely undercover seating space and this is a fantastic development for local families.
