Nestled amongst the gum trees Minkarra Park offers something for kids of varying ages.

This could be a great park to get out and burn some energy with the kids for the following reasons

– The bright and colourful soft fall rubber flooring surrounding the playground. Our crawler makes the most of the long stretches of flooring and climbs all over the large rocks.

– For little ones walking, the playground offers swings, a large spinning wheel, slide and climbing triangle.

– For the more adventurous and thrill seeking the large Skate Park facilities or BMX trail may be the fix.

– For those who want to explore nature there is the flagstaff rotary walk with both paved and natural path’s. Alternatively the kids may want to create their own fun and make a branch cubby.

– Even the family dog wins with the fully fenced Minkarra dog park.

– For a quick workout (or show the kids how strong dad is), the permanent outdoor gym with soft flooring is the place to be.

Minkarra is a bit isolated from any shops or cafes so a suggestion would be to swing by The Hub shopping centre in Aberfoyle park or grab a coffee from the Macca’s drive thru in Darlington or Happy Valley.

The final four –
– 2 toilets on site.
– Large Carpark
– No shade sails or permanent roofing (however large gum trees provide shade most of the day)
– Minkarra Park has something for everyone

  • Image credit: City of Playford This park is part of a nature reserve, with a small playground that includes a slide, spinner, swings and some cool climbing/balancing equipment Image credit: City of Playford It's a great area for a run around, kick of the ball or somewhere you can sit with the dog (on leash) while the kids have a play Image credit: City of Playford There's not many facilities around though, a bench seat and a rubbish bin is about it. No toilets or shade Thanks to Amy for this playground review 36 Seavington Road, Elizabeth Park

  • 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.

  • Where: The Parade, Kensington Park With a recent development (Opened September 2020) of the existing playground, this has been transformed into such a beautiful toddler playground. Nature play is the theme here with the playground sitting nicely with the local scenery, but the trade off for this is it probably is only a playground for the up to 5 years crowd. There is shade, toilets, a water fountain and tables, but it isn't fully fenced which isn't too much of an issue as the road side is fenced. The nearby Kensington Oval was in immaculate condition when we visited (no doubt it always is!) so feel free to bring a ball or frisbee to have a muck around. Parking isn't too bad either, so we just parked on The Parade next to the oval. There is a reasonable amount of play equipment, with swings, balancing logs, and a small tower and slide which will keep the young ones happy enough. Coffee wise (always the most important playground feature!), it is on The Parade....you could pick anywhere and it will be good!
