This quaint little play area was a little tricky to find but we are certainly glad we did. With 4 kids in tow ranging from 2 , 3 , 5 and 8 years old this playground was great for all these ages. The 8 year old loved the small flying fox along with all the challenging climbing pieces that featured several varieties of monkey bars with each frame requiring different skills set. He also loved the grassed area so he could kick his soccer ball and run freely ( oh and get away from the little ones )

The 5 and 3 year old also enjoyed the easier climbing pieces such as the stairs and ladder frames. They loved the balancing beam, enjoyed the curly slide and all took turns on the swing set. The 2 year just did her own thing – surprise suprise! Gave every thing a go (of course) and especially loved the baby swing along with the little toddler play area that features a small tunnel along with a small slippery dip.

The playground has a lovely community vibe. Some of the equipment is shaded, and it has a hedge that acts as a fence, however please be aware if you have runners it is not fully secure. The playground has no toilets and a seat/table all in one that we all sat down on for morning tea. If you are looking for food or coffee the closest is Mawson Lakes – we used the Boat Shed café and bought the kids some snacks from home.

Lucia Place Reserve is located at 9/11 Lucia Place, Mawson Lakes

  • Where: Kooralla Grove, Kidman Park What a great little park this one is. With a fantastic range of play equipment, including some reasonably challenging climbing equipment to a playground with an enclosed twirly slide, this has something for most ages. It even has a heap of outdoor gym equipment but lets be honest, apart from sitting on the ski swingy one, nobody has ever used any of it....or is that just us? No toilets is the only let down here, but it has a BBQ, seating, a mix of toddler and traditional swings, several slides and is a really beautiful spot. There is no fencing but the river is about 100m away and it is in a nice quiet back street so you shouldn't have many issues.

  • Where: George Street, Marion The City of Marion have opened up yet another fabulous playground (they are really setting the standard aren't they), this time a spacious playground at George Street. With an in-ground trampoline, swing, sandpit, water pump and 2 historical-themed cubby houses, including a village store and a workers cottage, this one is really cool. There’s also a miniature fire pole, slide and logs to jump on and an upgraded 3-on-3 basketball and netball court. There's plenty of space (the oval and footy goals are just fantastic) for your doggo to run around, as well as a sheltered BBQ area. Oh and did we mention there are toilets? Because there are! We really enjoyed this one and there was plenty for our older boys to climb and swing around on, whilst also offering enough to keep the young ones entertained.

  • Dampier Reserve at Findon is great a central neighbourhood playground and reserve for the kids to discover (don't forget to bring the racquets!).  You'll find the following facilities: Nature play Sheltered picnic tablesTwo tennis courtsPlay equipment Basketball ringPublic toilets Not a bad little back street playground which if you are a local, is a great little spot to tire the kids out or have a hit of tennis!
