Marshmallow Park | Playground Review


One of Adelaide’s favourite playgrounds had a facelift recently and if you haven’t been for a while it’s certainly worth a visit to check out the fabulous new equipment.

Located on Glen Osmond Road, Marshmallow Park has been a popular family meeting spot for many years now.  It is especially good for toddlers and young children as it’s fully fenced with toilets near by.  There are numerous new structures well suited to little ones that we haven’t seen before with features to encourage balancing, climbing, exploring, jumping and hours of active, creative play.

The old climbing structure has been replaced and the new one features a slide, balance beam, climbing wall, ladder net, steps, a fireman’s pole and monkey bars.

The sand play area has remained, but the old structure has been replaced with a brightly coloured new one, again ideal for little ones as it’s low to the ground and features wide steps and a small, low slide.

Many of Marshmallow Park’s original features still remain, such as the coloured tunnels and poles, the path loop, timber decking, the bridge and water pump.  To see our first review of Marshmallow Park (from 2012) click here.
