Unley Oval Playground

Nature Play, Play, Playgrounds in Adelaide

The City of Unley consulted with the “playground experts” to help them upgrade the Unley Oval playground.

During community consultation with local residents, the City of Unley specifically sought suggestions from children in the area about what they would like to see incorporated into the improved playground, atop the northern mound at Unley Oval, known as the ‘Hilltop Playground’.

93 children from local schools and kindergartens offered their suggestions with most popular ideas including an aeroplane, haunted house, castle, pirate ship, nature play and incorporating animal designs such as elephants, spiders, cats and unicorns. (YES! playgrounds DEFINITELY need more unicorns we say!)

The kids love the new multi-story structure with giant 3m tube slide, a toddler slide, climbing wall and a bird’s eye view across the whole oval. There is also a great ‘balanced swing/see-saw’ that both kids and adults can enjoy at the same time.

  • Where: Brighton Road, Brighton (Highet Avenue is a side street nearby) Fully Fenced Playground! That is usually music to the the ears of a lot of people, because knowing your little tacker can run around and not actually escape is just bliss. Thankfully the newly developed Gladys Mathwin playground at the Brighton Oval sports complex is fully fenced and with a load of other must haves for parents (except toilets which weren't readily visible but would be in the sports complex buildings nearby) including lots of free parking, drinking fountain, seating, picnic tables, shade and a fully sheltered BBQ. What a great spot! The playground is fantastic and has lots for kids of most ages, with a big tube slide, lots of climbing equipment and swings and some beautiful brightly coloured smaller equipment for the under 5 crowd. We loved the bright colours, lots of shade, easy access to the oval for a kick of the footy and proximity to all the coffee spots of Jetty Road at Brighton. They have used bark as the major ground material so it may cause an accessibility issue at times but paths and soft surfaces have been used amongst the bark as well.…

  • Myponga Nature Playground opened in mid 2018 and was a very welcome addition to the local area. This is another nature themed playground from the folks at Nature Play Landscaping who are behind some of our other favourite playgrounds including the new one at Point Turton The park has lots of wooden and rope climbing features, swings, wooden monkey bars/climbing ladder and a nice big sandpit. A beautiful spot to stop for a play and it's located on the main street of Myponga right between a bakery and take away shop, cant go wrong with that! It's fully fenced, there's a BBQ and the large shady trees surrounding the park make up for no shade sail (trees are way better anyway) There's also no toilets on site, but there are public toilets across the road, maybe 400m walk away. Check out the Myponga markets across the road open 9:30 am until 4:00pm Saturdays, Sundays and most Public Holidays and it's also not far to the Myponga Reservoir Reserve. Lots to do in the area so make a day of it! Image credit: Nature Play Landscaping Find it on the Main Street in Myponga

  • THIS PARK IS A WINNER! We stopped in on the way to cherry picking at Lennane's for a "quick" play but it turned into an extended play once we got there and we'll definitely be back. This park was renovated in 2015 and it still looks great. It's in a really nice big open space next to Payneham Oval and surrounded by trees and covered in nice green grass. The playground has shade sails over the main play areas but definitely make sure you bring your hat and sunscreen because there are lots of open areas to play. The playground is not fully fenced BUT it's easy to watch your kids from all angles and the streets on each side are quiet so not too much of a worry. The park has a jigsaw theme and the range of equipment has something for everyone from toddlers to older kids.
