Hazelwood Park Playground is a beauty for families of all ages and abilities. Upgraded in 2010, this shady park with plenty to do was one of the first (and still one of our fave) parks with a nature play feel. Set in the corner of the huge reserve there is plenty of space, plenty of shade and plenty of play equipment. In the summer the Burnside Outdoor Pool is also open to the public with large, clean pools and a great kids area too..

Our family love the big softfall hill with inbuilt steps and slides, the super high climbing net, the old tractor to climb on, the dual flying fox and the sandput with dinosaur bones in it to bring out their inner paleantologist. Just a note the the playground isn’t fully fenced and while it’s relatively easy to keep an eye on the kids, parents should take extra care.

  • 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.

  • 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. Find it at 38 Bagster Rd, Salisbury North

  • A brand new $1million dollar playground has just opened in Two Wells! Near the Eden Residential Estate, the new playground is another nature play themed play space and made from all natural materials. The park itself is quite small but there's lots of balancing logs and beams, climbing nets, a nest swing, and a great hill slide that little sliders will love. There's an undercover picnic area with BBQ, making this a great spot for a birthday party or picnic lunch. Currently no toilets or shade over the playground.
