Find it at: Yorktown Road, Elizabeth Park 'Dwight Reserve', located on the corner of Yorktown and Adams Rd is a nice little spot for the locals with some cool equipment and a HEAP of space. It has a car park, shaded seating, park benches, rubbish bins and a large oval nearby (bring the footy or a kite!). It doesn't have secure fencing or toilets but is great for a quick play after school or a picnic on the weekend. I do love the multi-ring basketball bucket...sort of reminds me of Greenhills at Victor Harbor and beating my brother when we were kids! So make sure you pack the car with ALL of the balls, kites and frizbees.
Find it at: Swan Ct, Renown Park Sam Johnson Reserve and sportsground in Renown Park has something for everyone. Busy most weekends with the local sporting clubs on the many fields, but also great for the local play equipment, an afternoon kick of the footy or to practise cricket, basketball, tennis or just about any other sport! The playground has a climbing area, a number of swings including 2 baby swings, slide, rockers, monkey bars, and rope climbing frame. Sam Johnson Reserve also has plenty of shaded areas, lots of open space (when not in use by local sports clubs), a shelter, water fountain and open cricket nets.
Find it at: Kenton Avenue, Oaklands Park Another nice little playground for the locals, with a range of equipment outside of the normal combo of tower slide + swing. They do have some swings, which our crew got around, with a normal swing, toddler swing and dount net swing to entertain the troops. The big horizontal climbing net provided a good challenge for the older kids and the sound pipes are always fun! We loved the adjacent bike and scooter trail, which adds a bit of difference to the area but there was no real flat area for any ball sports sorry sports fans. There aren't any toilets here but it is only a small local spot, so not a huge shock there, however we did like the water fountain. Shade wise you are sort of left to enjoy the local trees which cover a part of the playground but a lot is left exposed. Lots of sand too for those parents who love sand play (yet to meet one, but they may exist) and a water play set up will help that easy to brush off dry sand turn into annoying wet sand. This one isn't fully fenced either…
