The Semaphore playground is right in the middle of the Semaphore Foreshore Reserve and¬†bordered by The Fort Glanville Train Rides, The Semaphore Carousel, bustling Semaphore Road and of course the beach and jetty. Don’t forget the great kiosk which is always open right at the gate, plus the train rides depart all from the one central location.

The playground is undercover and fully fenced with lots of climbing equipment, a flying fox, slides and tunnels. It truly is one of the nicest playground locations in Adelaide, right in the heart of the Semaphore entertainment precinct.

  • Semaphore playground is located along one of South Australia's most magnificent beaches; Semaphore Foreshore. The playground is fenced, has toilets, sun shade, BBQ area and ample car parking. The equipment is suitable for toddlers and there's also a wheelchair swing and ramp available. There are cafes nearby in Semaphore or you can head 5 minutes drive down the road to Largs Bay for more options. The Soldier's memorial is worth a look and the kids won't be able to go past the very cool mini train station (which actually goes quite far!). There's also the long Semaphore jetty, which is beautiful to wander down and great for inquisitive kids keen to see what the local fishermen have caught. The playground is really well presented, with great paths and grassed area to relax on. During the school holidays there are rides, stalls and games for kids to enjoy and the whole atmosphere of Sempahore is like a little fairground. There's also the waterslide, putt-putt golf and ferris wheel, with ANOTHER playground on the other side of this, a large grassed area, and a big undercover eating spot. Lots of room for everyone! Semaphore Waterslides and ferris wheel are not always running…

  • On the corner of Rogers Terrace and Robert St in Maitland there is a great combination playground. It boasts both the typical metal/plastic style playground with a large wooden climbing section. There is a spinning ride (although beware after rain as it fills with water), swings, a big slide, a digger and climbing equipment. It is surrounded by fence for most of the playground with just a small gap for entering (not secure). It has a car park, shaded seating, a free bbq, a double cricket pitch and it's just a short walk to nearby toilets.Fun for the whole family!

  • Where: Norman Road, Aldinga Beach Ah Silver Sands. God's country this is. One of the best spots along our coast for beautiful beaches, incredible views and serenity. Also not far from the Victory Hotel which is a fab spot for lunch. But did you know apart from all the natural wonder there is also a great little kids playground, located right on the beach front opposite the Aldinga Bay SLSC. With a nautical theme (naturally), this one is best suited to the under 10s with a few swings and some small boat-themed climbing equipment with a slide. It is a great spot for a BBQ with shaded facilities to cook and eat, plus toilets too. There is no shade over the playground and it isn't fenced to any great degree from the nearby car park What a fabulous way to let the kids play after a day at one of Adelaide's best beaches!
