Glenthorne Nature Play Space

Exciting news to hear that our State Government and Marion Council have approved funding for a MASSIVE multi million dollar nature play space – expected to be even bigger and better than our ever popular St Kilda and Morialta Playgrounds. The new nature play space will sit inside Glenthorne National Park – right here in Adelaide’s South.

The new ‘St Kilda of the South” as it’s being referred is yet to have a set design, however we can expect to see it commissioned in the very near future with an opening date in 2021

Environment Minister David Speirs says it will be a ‘must visit’ playground that will attract thousands to the National Park.

Glenthorne National Park opened in May 2019, and the planned play space is just one small part of an exciting area that will allow the use of existing and new infrastructure to create an accessible and inclusive network of open space rich in environmental and cultural value, authentically connected to surrounding communities.

The unique new national park is a mosaic of open space, each part unique but together forming a rich tapestry.

  • Nestled amongst the bushland at Craigburn Farm, this brand new adventure nature playground is a real winner and worth the drive. Essentially being a bit of a ninja/climbing course over rocks, poles and other naturey type objects, it is great for kids and parents to test out those hamstrings and the sore lower back. It is a bit lacking in extra facilities like toilets, fencing and shade, but it is a stones throw from the epic Blackwood Treetop playground so it makes for a cool playground double header.

  • When we think of the playgrounds for toddlers we think of one key thing FENCES. Anything else is pretty much a bonus! We also look for swings, toilets and, even better, a nice shaded space. These things are not always possible (why don't ALL playgrounds have fences ALL the way around?!), but check out these playgrounds around Adelaide that we think your kids- and you- will love [catlist id=1175 thumbnail=yes]
