Top 10 things to do with toddlers in Adelaide

Toddlers are busy, toddlers are fun, when they throw a tantrum you’ll just want to run! Toddlers can be hard work, but can also be SO MUCH fun. Give them the right space and it’s so entertaining (and also very important) to just let them free and watch them learn, experience, climb, run, fall, work out and try again. Finding that safe space can be tricky though and a fully fenced playground, shallow spot for a splash on a hot day, a cafe with a great play corner or a venue that caters for toddler needs is like finding gold in them thar hills. Here’s our top 10 ways to keep your toddlers happy, entertained and having fun in Adelaide

Don’t you just love those parks with soooooo much open space and beautiful green lawn for the kids to run around on – and even better with hills to roll down? Well that’s what you’ll find at Carisbrooke Park. A big TICK for me at this playground is the number of swings they have – 10 in total, and some different ones to try out.
