Jubilee Playground is one of the biggest and best playgrounds in the Adelaide area. It’s an oldie but a goodie and most of the awesome play equipment that forms a castle is made out of wood which makes it even cooler!

Jubilee Playground has HEAPS of things to keep kids from toddler to high school amused and has different sections for different abilities – from slides, swings, poles, climbing frames, tunnels and plenty more.

We Love:

  • The huge wooden castle and surrounds that provides heaps of places for kids to run, hide and have fun,
  • Smaller kids “Tot Lot” section fenced off,
  • Musical bells,
  • Swings including a cool adult/child seated swing (see pic above),
  • Climbing frames including rock climbing wall and modern climbing frames,
  • Ship, rocket, fire pole, lighthouse and other cool structures,
  • Tunnels, balance boards and numerous slides,
  • Wheelchair accessible (although some areas have bark chips),
  • New modern section of playground includes water play and a giant giraffe!
  • BBQs,
  • Toilets 250m away including disabled access,
  • Lots of green space available for ball games, picnics, flying kites etc,
  • Fencing around a lot of the equipment,
  • Heaps of seating, benches and tables – some with shelter.

The new, modern area of the playground is outside of the wooden section and adds yet more equipment and more interest to Jubilee Playground. With everyone’s favourite water play (pack a spare change of clothes!) plus some more ‘regular’ playground items like swings, a net climbing frame and Cosi’s giant giraffe!

Hot tip – get there early if you’re planning a party or a bbq as it gets busy on the weekends. Bring a change of clothes for kids who love water play – honestly, bring a change of clothes either way coz they WILL find the water!

  • Located within Belair National Park and surrounded by 800 hectares of beautiful bush this playground is an oldie, but a goodie! These photos bring back so many memories for us. Can anyone else remember school excursions here in the 80s and eating massive bush biscuits? Sitting in the huge concrete tunnels and then scurrying away trying to hide from your friends. Belair National Park sells itself. An iconic spot in Adelaide with beautiful natural scenery, fantastic facilities scattered throughout to suit whatever occasion you are after. If you haven't visited the adventure playground in a few years, bring your kids and spend the day. They will love the open space, the iconic huge concrete tubes, wooden fort and playground equipment. It has all you need in a playground too. Toilets, shelter, BBQ and parking. Check out the national park here for all the park entry details.

  • Where: Madison Road, Monash - between Barmera and Renmark in the Riverland Most of us oldies will remember Monash Playground from when we were kids. Back in the 80s and 90s it looked a bit like this.. It was EPIC! (and also terrifying) It doesn't look like that anymore but it's still one of S.A's most loved playgrounds and definitely worth a visit if you're staying in the Riverland or passing through. It's about 3 hours drive from Adelaide between Barmera and Renmark. There's something for all ages at this park. Toddlers will love the and older kids will go crazy for the adventure equipment including big leaning towers, rope bridge, wave bridge, flying fox, see saws, slides, mega swings and even a maze! There's also some accessible equipment including a liberty swing. And if that's not enough, in late 2019 they went and added even more equipment including a new Tree House, inclusive Swing Set and get giddy on the Merry-Go-Round! The grounds are beautifully well maintained (well done Berri/Barmera council) and there are onsite toilets, free BBQs, picnic areas and plenty of nice grassy spots for a picnic. It's one of those places you can easily spend a…
