Where: George Street, Parkside

A nice little set up, with a heap of Pros but a few Cons too. Parking was a nightmare, a little side street not far from Greenhill Road was a tough parking challenge, but once you stop it is quite nice what they have done with the space.

Fully fenced which is fab! The area has been fenced off into a large playground space and an open grassed section for sports, dogs etc. The playground is also fully shaded and has seating, with a nearby water fountain also very handy. The play equipment is great for the younger primary kids, a really nice big piece of equipment with a slide and lots of climbing apparatus. No toilets at this one sadly, but a great little ‘pop in for 10 minutes’ playground.

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

  • Where: South Parklands, Lightsview A fabulous adventure playground has been added to the Lightsview development, which is well worth the trip! Opened in April 2021, the nature play themed park includes water play, a huge number of logs and balancing beams to test out kids and parents alike! Throw in a climbing hill with slide, a basketball court, in-ground tramps, swings and even more slides, and you will no doubt find something to keep all ages entertained. For the parents there are a couple of BBQs and some under cover bench seats and tables. It is deep within the development so there isn't any car parks beyond the street parking in the area. The nearby wetlands are sensational and really add to the relaxing vibe of the park, and we absolutely loved the little board walk path between the ponds. Permanent toilets are on their way but are yet to be built, but apart from a handful of shade sails there wasn't a lot of shade being a new development and all. We must warn you that parking can be difficult and may be a hassle during your trip, so hopefully that is something that is improved over time.

  • Souter Park Goodwood is a lovely little playground and park area on the corner of Albert and Hardy Streets in Goodwood. The fully enclosed playground equipment is ideal for younger families from crawlers to 5years, while the wide open play areas just outside the fenced area is great for any age to run and play. Inside the fenced area is a 'littlies' playground with slide, 'lookout', ramps, steps, and sandpit area. There is another slightly larger slide above the huge sandpit area, 2 baby swings, see saw, and larger sandpit play equipment best suited for 3-7yrs. Virtually all of the equipment is shaded and there is a kids sized bench seat and table within the fenced area. Outside the fenced area are toilets, soccer goals, 2 swings, numerous shaded and unshaded benches and tables and 3 bbqs. It can be a popular spot on the weekends, but if you don't get one of the tables, there are many large shade trees to sit under when it's warm.   Souter Park Where: Corner of Albert and Hardy Streets, Goodwood
