Roxby Downs – Hermit Street Nature Play Space

Nature Play, Play, Playgrounds in Adelaide, Regional Playgrounds

The Hermit Street Nature Play Space in Roxby Downs opened to the public on Thursday 7 May 2020 and doesn’t it look fantastic!

The aim of the redevelopment was to provide a recreational space that encourages the community of Roxby Downs to embrace the Roxby Downs environment and for children to utilise their imagination to enjoy a range of outdoor developmental activities.  It was also important for materials to be durable and sustainable given the harsh Roxby climate.

The nature play space includes; slide, rope net, net bridge, balance posts, swings and a water play feature with a sand pit. The playground has secure fencing, shade over the play area, a public toilet, drinking fountain and shaded area with barbecue.

  • The incredible new nature play space at Bowman Park Crystal Brook is now open! The photos below just look incredible and we can't wait to head up and have a look on our next road trip. Designed and built by the uber talented folks at Climbing Tree Consultancy (Simon has been promising to show us his shed...which we expect will be EPIC!), built in only 9 weeks (meanwhile painting a toy box has taken me about 3 months so far....) after an idea 3 years in the design and planning, the result is a stunning play space located along the edge of a creek with majestic river redgums and an abundance of local wildlife. What we love is how the whole community has come together for this, with talented local artists and builders providing their amazing skills but also rocks, machinery and other little gems you will find during your adventures. We think they have absolutely nailed it. Just a short drive off the main Highway to Port Pirie and Port Augusta, this is the NEW detour that you just have to take!
