The Kingston Park Coastal Reserve is such a beautiful location. With the Brighton Beachfront Holiday Park and Seacliff Surf Club on one side and the Marino Coastal Trail walking trail on the other, the surrounds are just beautiful. Kids will love exploring all around the park, and although the playground equipment itself is relatively small, there are tennis courts and plenty of large play spaces to investigate and enjoy. This really is the perfect place for a birthday party, Easter Egg event or Christmas get-together.

In front of the playground is the southern end of Seacliff beach and this is THE BEST place for kids to search rock pools, discover sea creatures and jump from rock to rock- basically they will have an absolute ball!

Facilities:

  • BBQ and eating area (under shelter)
  • Playground
  • Huge grassed areas to play and explore
  • 2 public-use tennis courts
  • Toilets (no baby change facility in toilets)
  • Native Spring
  • Close to the beach

Things to note:

  • The playground is not under shade cover and it isn’t fenced. However, the car park and road is quite far from the playground.
  • The Marino Rocks Cafe has absolutely to die for fish and chips and isn’t too far away (head south from the playground), and just to the north (through the caravan park) is the Seacliff Surf Club as well as Oceans Food Truck
  • There is a small food truck just next to the caravan park (about 100m away) that serves toasted sandwiches, coffee, icecream and drinks.

  • Image credit: Kingston District Council Fully fenced, surrounded by grass and located near shops for a food or drink. The Lions Park in Kingston SE is either a great spot for a play if staying in Kingston or a great place for the kids to have a run and play if on your way further down the South East. The play equipment is great for a range of ages. It features 2 slides. One for the little ones and a curly slide for a bit more excitement for the early school aged kids. Of course our 18 month old preferred the more exciting one! The play space has quite a few climbing pieces to challenge older kids. A solid climbing frame, a miniature rock climbing wall, stairs, poles and climbing chain frame. It features a few games such a noughts and crosses along with some imaginative play areas. You will find a seesaw for the toddlers along with a swing set including a baby swing. Lots of open grass, toilets and shade this is a great regional play area. We used it for a lunch and play spot on our way to Robe but it is great if you are…

  • Located on Montrose St at Ferryden Park, this little spot has just had $155, 000 spent on an upgrade which is now open! There is new play equipment including a rubber softfall mat, slide, bouncy buggy, trampolines and double swings. They have also installed two new park seats and a new drinking fountain!

  • We love this playground! It's small but perfect for the whole family. The in ground trampolines are favourites with ours as is the climbing frame.It has a shade sail but also surrounded by gorgeous trees, so often shady even on the hottest summer day. There's a barbecue and picnic table and plenty of room to kick a ball. Across the bridge is a skate park, public toilet and Unley pool which has a cafe for coffee, ice creams and snacks in the months the pool is open. This park is right next the Goodwood train station and a short walk from the Forestville tram stop for easy public transport access.Two Sparrows Cafe and Kitchen as well as Dear Daisy cafe are a short walk away.The Adelaide Showgrounds Farmer's Market is right around the corner, so a great spot to stop on the way to or from the market. The downsides are, no fence and there is a creek in the reserve. It's rarely running but something to be mindful of if your little one likes to wander!
