Just in time for school holidays we managed a sneak peek of this newly developed nature playground.
The Marion council have done a great job of this space which sits adjacent to the Scouts Association.

The nature based area is a fabulous spot for toddlers and young kids to run around and be creative with this awesome little sensory play area. Featuring a sand play and water play area along with natural logs and lots of little areas for the little ones to explore and get lost in their own world of imaginative play.

My favourite is the slippery dip that has the rock climb mound you need to make your way to the top of  to get down the slide. ( the little ones will be exhausted from the climb) bravo I hear you all say.

Also featured is a spinning top and as we were a tad excited about seeing this new awesome play area, the basket swing still needs to be hung. Appears that will be done in the next few days but we just couldn’t wait to share this one with you.

The area has a car park along with a enclosed fence on 1 side of the playground but is open on the Alison St side with an array of trees and shrubs. The sand play area is under shade cloth and the picnic table and BBQ area is protected by a new shelter. Once the trees continue to grow this playground will receive even more shade. Unfortunately no toilets .

In need of a coffee there a few little close coffee shops nearby. Sublime Coffee on Bray St , Once and Again Book Café on Marion Road.

A lovely nature play area the kids will love exploring.

Well done Marion council.

49 Sixth Ave Ascot Park. Carparks are located at the southern end on Sixth Avenue.

  • City of Marion have upgraded this reserve (August 2019) with new play equipment, a refurbished shelter with BBQ and a gorgeous picnic table that reminded our kids of the Three Little Bears table. This is a quaint little park with some nice nature themed equipment.Lots of logs to climb on and in, stepping stones, climbing poles and a set of swings. It's not fully fenced but located on a fairly quiet street and fenced on three of the sides so a good one for little kids who like to climb and explore without having to worry about them running off. There's a nice green lawn to sit or play and we love the new colourful mural on the back fence. Downside there are no toilets, and no shade. Image credit: City of Marion FB Page

  • Keeping in touch with the environment this upgraded local playground at Sheidow Park is finished and looking great . A small quaint upgraded play space area has been added to the existing reserve and allows the local kids a place to play on the NEW equipment or amongst the existing trees and open grass area. The play ground features a mound slippery dip nestled amongst rocks and shrubs where the kids can choose to climb up on the stairs or the rocks depending on skill levels. The nest swing is always a favourite and is appearing more and more at these upgraded play spaces. The kids will also find a rope climbing cone shaped piece of equipment along with a sea saw made from a log keeping with its back to nature theme . For the little ones you will find a timber bouncy piece of equipment . Positioned around the play space are logs for the kids to climb and walk along .

  • Wow this is a huge area for the kids to run wild and let off some energy. With the new playground upgrade in June 2017 this reserve/playground/skate park is worth the visit. As soon as I got to the gate I was super excited to see the colourful equipment painted green and orange that awaits you. The bright equipment is a fabulous add to this existing skate park. A multi level climbing tower is the main structure to this playground and caters for all ages First level is for the little ones and has a little slide whilst the big kids can keep climbing the tower and enjoy the tubular slide that looks like a small water slide. Along with the colourful tower this playground has a swing set including a baby swing, a little see saw, a climbing area with monkey bars and a few other pieces for the little ones to play on with most pieces protected by the shade cloth. Not far from the play equipment you will find fitness equipment, followed by a basketball ring then the Skate park. Look further a field and right down the other end of this reserve is a cricket net,…
