Where: Madison Road, Monash – between Barmera and Renmark in the Riverland

Most of us oldies will remember Monash Playground from when we were kids. Back in the 80s and 90s it looked a bit like this.. It was EPIC! (and also terrifying)

It doesn’t look like that anymore but it’s still one of S.A’s most loved playgrounds and definitely worth a visit if you’re staying in the Riverland or passing through. It’s about 3 hours drive from Adelaide between Barmera and Renmark.

There’s something for all ages at this park. Toddlers will love the and older kids will go crazy for the adventure equipment including big leaning towers, rope bridge, wave bridge, flying fox, see saws, slides, mega swings and even a maze! There’s also some accessible equipment including a liberty swing.

And if that’s not enough, in late 2019 they went and added even more equipment including a new Tree House, inclusive Swing Set and get giddy on the Merry-Go-Round!

The grounds are beautifully well maintained (well done Berri/Barmera council) and there are onsite toilets, free BBQs, picnic areas and plenty of nice grassy spots for a picnic. It’s one of those places you can easily spend a day. Please note: there is also a creek that runs through the park so watch your little ones around that area.
