Find all the best playgrounds around Adelaide here

Adelaide has many wonderful adventure parks and playgrounds suitable for all ages, and offer an array of different challenges.

Some are well kept secrets while others are exploding with activity on a regular basis. Playing outside on various types of structures provides children with both physical and mental stimulation. Kids love to run around outside, they meet other children and there’s not a screen of any sort in sight!

The best playgrounds are not always that easy to find, so we have compiled a list here of some of the ones we know and love. If you know of an adventure park or playground that deserves to be on this list – let us know! Email us here with your suggestion.
