Another park in Mt Barker with LOADS of space. Keith Stephenson Park is located on Adelaide Road, Mount Barker

There is lots of space, lots of shady trees and lots of spots for a picnic and a play on the playground. There are walking trails, bike paths and even a duck pond….but remember try not to feed them, bread for birds is a no no.

There is a rotunda and nearby BBQ facilities – a great spot for a birthday party, and we love that the park in inclusive, with a liberty swing installed.

The playground equipment is suited mostly to younger kids and includes

  • Climbing ropes and frames
  • Swings including a Birds nest swing
  • Nice gentle slides

  • If you are heading to the states South East or on a road trip to Melbourne or any where along Dukes Highway, Keith Playground (around 2.5 hours from Adelaide) is an iconic MUST stop. Their famous 'train' could well be the last of the states REAL fun old school play equipment and I guarantee your kids will run and run and play and burn energy ready to get back in the car. The park also offers a large lawn area, BBQ's, bins and toilets. There is a little shade and a few shady trees. While the play ground is not fenced it is off of the main highway on a service road and the play area is across a huge grassed area way from even the service road traffic and parking. Keith the township has a great bakery (The Morning Loaf) and also worth looking for the 'Land-rover on a Pole' the 'Army Tank' and the 'CFS shed wall mural'. We hope this playground never looses its iconic train-coaster. We have stopped here literally hundreds of times and haven't seen any kids hurt beyond scun knees from running too fast on the gravel. Even if you are heading to Mount…

No toilets or shade Thanks to Amy for this playground review 36 Seavington Road, Elizabeth Park
