This brand new play space is Stage 1 of the $7 MILLION upgrade of Plympton’s Weigall Oval, and it’s now OPEN to the public

We’ve just spent the afternoon at the opening of this great new play space in the West Torrens Council suburb of Plympton.

This is another great example of mixing nature based play elements (water play, rocks and balancing logs) with playground favourites (slides, swings, flying fox)

There’s wooden structures to climb, ropes to balance on, water to splash in, sand to build in. The natural elements are really inviting and the kids were having a ball.

There’s a good mix of toddler and older kids equipment with a small and big slide, separate toddler play area with sand pit, swings and flying fox for the big ones. There’s also some work out equipment if you fancy burning a few calories while the kids play.

The space itself is big open and grassy with lots of room to kick a ball, run around or have a picnic. (not a lot of shade though unfortunately) There’s bike tracks and tennis courts and stage 2 of the upgrade includes upgrading the existing soccer and baseball facilities.

Weigall Oval is located in the southern part of the City of West Torrens, in the suburb of Plympton. The entrance to the complex is on Urrbrae Terrace and the site is not far from the intersection of Anzac Highway and Marion Road
