City of Adelaide’s Best Playgrounds for Kids

The City’s Best Playgrounds and Playspaces in Adelaide

The Adelaide Park Lands are home to unique playgrounds where kids and families can be active and let their imaginations run wild. We’ve compiled a selection of our favourite places to make it quick and easy to pick a central playground when staying in or visiting the City of Adelaide.

From climbing equipment and spinning wheels to swings and slides, Adelaide has many fabulous playgrounds bordering the city. From Bonython Park in the West to  Marshmallow Play Space in the South, there are playgrounds for all ages and abilities to explore.  We have also included a few fabulous play spaces in North Adelaide too.
