You can access the Mount Compass Recreation Park from a number of surrounding streets including Anderson Street, Waye Court, Haywood Court and Eckers Court. If you’re not familiar with Mount Compass and you are travelling from the Victor Harbor main road, turn off at the Tay Road intersection and follow your nose until you turn right onto Waye Street and Waye Court.

  • What a great adventure! Blackwood Forest Recreation Park is a fantastic suburban park located in Hawthorndene, just 12 kms from the Adelaide CBD The most striking feature of this park is the huge pine forest that is a great place for kids to explore. Lots of little cubbies and huts throughout to climb in and on, swings, creek, blackberries, mud and trees to climb too! Surprises around every corner. It's a popular spot for walking, jogging, horse riding, bike riding and off leash dogs so you'll need to share the space with others. There are quite a few nearby cafes and bakeries if you want to stop and get a cuppa or snack on the way and be aware there are no toilets so make sure you take care of business before you arrive.

  • 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
