If your kids love slides, skate parks or shooting hoops……this is going to be their new favourite playground. We’re talking big slides, small slides, straight slides and one great big epic curly slide that is going to be VERY busy this weekend!

We’re calling it the best new party park in the North West, and it may just make the new TOP 10 in Adelaide, because it’s got LOTS of space and equipment for the whole family!

We LOVE that there are a number of different areas for different ages and interests. From multiple slides, to multiple swings, nature play elements, water play, sand play, a bunch of climbing parts and an awesome TWIN flying fox. Oh I can see the kids down there for races time after time already! There are also shelters, multiple BBQs, plenty of spots to sit and new toilets. Stage two included an epic skate park with a smaller beginners area and a heap of more complex ramps. Finally there is a huge lawn area and two brand new basketball hoops.

The MJ McInerney Reserve playground space has been completely overhauled and includes:

  • Sand and water play areas
  • Slides, slides and more slides including a very cool very high very twisty one
  • Full skate park
  • Basketball
  • A twin Flying fox
  • A number of swings for all ages, including a nest swing
  • Lots of logs and stones for balancing
  • Climbing nets
  • Swing bridges
  • Merry go round
  • New toilets
  • Tennis courts

There are no shade sails yet…..but we wonder if they might be coming soon (hope so anyway).

Nice one City of Charles Sturt!

Find it on Sackville St, West Croydon.
Parking available on surrounding streets including Sackville St, Mundulla St, Aroona Rd.

  • Where: Tiranna Way, West Lakes. Talk about location, location, location! We often forget we have an incredible lake over at West Lakes which provides some of the most beautiful scenery in town. This is a spectacular spot which if you visit on a nice day like we did, will make you feel like you are on holiday at some sort of fancy resort. There were a lot of things we loved about this one. The view of course. Obviously! But we loved the sandy beach and the little diggers (lovely surprise they were!), the shade sails were fantastic, the grassed area is great for a picnic or a lay down on a towel plus there is a bike track around the lake to top off the visit! Perfect. A few things to note though, it isn't fenced. A big issue with the nearby water so take note of that. Coffee (very important detail) is highly recommended from 'Old Habits' at the end of the road. There are toilets thankfully but no BBQ areas, which is a bit odd as it is THE perfect BBQ spot. Bring a rug too as there is hardly any seating. The playground is big enough…

  • 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.

  • This quaint little neighbourhood playground is nestled in the quiet suburb of Leabrook Fully fenced off park and whilst there is no shade provided the playground is situated under some beautiful big old gum trees that do provide some protection from the sun . There are also a few smaller trees around the edge off the grassed area that provide small amounts of shade for those wanting a small picnic space . This park is more suitable for toddlers and includes a swing set with a baby swing , small climbing ropes , slippery dip and my favourite is the big red truck that the kids can sit in and pretend to drive with the steering wheel . Unfortunately no toilets or BBQ facilities are located in this park Lovely little local playground . Phillip Ave Leabrook In need of a coffee the Leabrook Bakehouse and Patisserie is a short walk away on Glynburn Road .
