Where: Ash Avenue, Unley

What an absolute beauty this place is! Talk about a hidden gem that I am sure the locals would want to keep that way. A beautiful, fully fenced play space featuring a lovely playground, sandpits, swings and a heap of smaller play equipment scattered around the park. One thing I found amazing was all the toys left lying around, which are free for everyone to use and return once they are finished. How fantastic! Sand pits are fun but sand pits plus toys is way funner!

Definitely aimed at the younger kids, the playground is perfect (and under shade!) for the under 8s, with climbing equipment and a nice size slide for the young ones. Lots of trees add to the beautiful setting and plenty of grass to run around (and paths for riding scooters and bikes).

Parking is not bad, with quiet back streets on both sides of the park but there aren’t any toilets here sadly. What a fantastic facility for the locals and so well cared for too. A real delight this one.

  • 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 .
