The $3.5 million dual named Morton Park/Niipu-Niipu Wama ( Niipu-niipu Wama means ‘friendship park’ in the Kaurna language and this came from a community suggestion) finished in opened in October 2021 and what a spectacular facility for the south! It includes a skate park, multi-use tennis/netball courts, adventure play space, seating, shelters, barbecue facilities, basketball half-court, irrigated lawns and new toilets
We had to pop down and visit the fantastic skate park as soon as it opened and boy were we impressed! To quote our resident skate guru Scotty…..”Wicked bro, Fully sick, best skatepark in the South. Suitable for all abilities. 2 great adjoining bowls with spine. Great plaza with multiple features for growing abilities.” That sounds like the tick of approval for us! What a fantastic start to this soon to be epic facility for the south!
We swung by the fabulous playground the moment it opened to check it out and boy were we impressed. Lets run through some of our highlights;
- HEAPS of climbing equipment
- 2 shelters, one with a bbq.
- Along with the skatepark there is also a mini pump track
- In ground trampoline –
- Netball hoops of 3 different sizes, along with the bball court & ovals
- Some teen/ adult workout / ninja course pieces that also double as good climbing & hanging equipment for kids
Toilets are on the agenda to be built, with portaloos currently on site which is great.
What a tremendous facility for the south!
