Nestled amongst the neighbourhood of Hallett Cove and located right next to the Hallett Cove train station and tennis courts this playground has just had an upgrade and it looks fabulous. With a mixture of a few pieces of equipment, water and nature play this is a great spot for the local kids to hang out for the school holidays.

The long tube green tunnel slide is the first thing you see as you arrive to the park and is set up high on a mound. The kids need to climb the rock stairs to reach it. Our 2 year old surprisingly climbed the stairs and rode the long slide with confidence and laughter several times. The coloured talking tubes are a fun feature of the park and the nest swing was flying high when we visited.

The nature and water play include a water pump nestled on a small mound that is accessed by stairs created by large rocks and allows the water to flow down into a small valley that the kids can play in. So may we suggest a change of clothes. There are also lots of logs and coloured stumps the kids can use to balance and climb on.

Parts of the equipment are shaded with large shade cloths. There are toilets and a lovely shaded picnic table along with BBQ facilities. There is no fence however it is set back from the road and surrounded by grass. You could use the train station car park for parking but be mindful on week days it is quite full. The local shopping centre is just up the road if you need a coffee or snacks. Well done City of Marion Council on another fab community park upgrade.

Find it at Shamrock Rd, Hallett Cove

  • This playspace is located just off Quailo Avenue at Glade Crescent Reserve, Hallett Cove is a wonderful space for varying ages. We visited on the weekend with our 2-year-old and she loved it! The park is divided into two sections, one for juniors and one for seniors so there's something for all ages here. The junior side has 3 slides of different heights and widths. There's a train to play in and a few different types of toddler swings. The slides are shaded so no burnt bums going down! The senior playground has a great flying fox that is the highlight and also has lots of nature based items to balance and climb on. There's a big sandpit and even a really fun bike/scooter path, so pack your wheels! There's lots of space and shade here. Plenty of seating, tables, water fountains and a couple of BBQs. A great spot for a birthday party. A toilet is located on the Quailo Avenue side of the reserve.

  • Where: Central Avenue, Hallett Cove A fabulous new addition to the City of Marion's range of playspaces opened up in March 2021, with the brand spanking new playground at Central Avenue Reserve. Using the site's slope to the fullest advantage, the highlight here is a super quick flying fox which takes kids (and parents!) from the rock-climb inspired slide playground and basketball court, right down to the sand play and shelter area at the bottom. The climbing playground is a really unique set up here too, with a variety of climbing challenges for the older kids (but it isn't too high to rule out the younger ninja's either. Make it to the top and the kids will travel to the bottom in a nice little tube slide. Great stuff! There is plenty of lawn surrounded by trees and you will find balance beams and wooden log steppers throughout he reserve too, as well as a swing set including baby swing. Chuck in some shaded areas and a brand new BBQ and this is a fantastic facility for the locals. No toilets at this one sadly.

  • What a great play space this is to allow kids to just be kids. We love Pavana Park playground in Hallett Cove for the wide open space! As soon as you arrive at this playground there is an air of excitement as it caters to a variety of ages. Whilst the the play equipment area is more suitable for toddlers there are a few pieces the older kids enjoyed. The round spinning top being one of them that reminded me of the old fashion clothes line my Nan and Pop had in the backyard. In addition to this the sliding/moving flying fox was also being used by some older kids. For the younger kids including toddlers the main play equipment is shaded and features quite a few balancing and climbing options. From balancing steps, wobbly rope stairs , normal stairs, a miniature rock climbing wall along with a fireman pole to slide down this play space was enjoyed by the younger ones. Lets not forget the double slippery dip along with the swings to also keep us entertained . As we moved away from the equipment you also found a half basketball court that was being used by a few…
