Freedom Park Liberty Playground in Two Wells – Review
By Claire Davill
This is a playground worth the drive from Adelaide! There’s plenty here to keep kids occupied for a long time. Our playground tester (six years old) ranked this playground a “10 out of 10!”
The Liberty Playground in Freedom Park is part of a $1.2 billion residential development on the northern side of the Two Wells township. The area is so new, that not all of the streets are on google maps yet – aim for Mary Lee Street and you’ll get close enough to see the playground.
The playground reflects the country nature of the setting, with a windmill tower (with a huge tube slide), lots of wooden play equipment and landscaped gardens all throughout. There is a large hill covered in log steps, rocks and flowers and shrubs to climb (with a gently sloping path option for those who require it).
There’s towers with rope bridges, slides of varying height, climbing walls, a merry go round and swings.
There are log stepping stones and cement stepping stones with a variety of animal footprints to follow.
There’s a water play area, with a pump, long creek bed and sand bed to dig and excavate, and a separate sandpit with lever-operated diggers.
A couple of springy seats, table tennis table (bring your own paddles and balls) and giant chess board (bring your own pieces), and large lawn areas round out the grounds.
There are two barbeque shelters and plenty of benches and seats, and a single toilet block. There are also drinking fountains.
The playground is not fenced and is bordered by a street on one side (the only parking available is along this street) and a seasonal creek on the other side. The creek has stepping stones and a small footbridge to explore.
There is very little shade at the playground, but there are shade trees planted that will eventually provide some shelter.
What we liked about the playground:
- Plenty to keep kids occupied for a long play
- A variety of equipment to suit all ages
- Lots of greenery and landscaping
- Great views from the top of the hill and the top of the windmill tower
- A great stop off if you are heading north of the city to the Barossa or Clare Valley
Things to consider:
- The playground is not fenced and close to one street (Jefferson Boulevard). Currently the street sees little traffic, but this is likely to change as the area becomes more developed
- The only parking available is parallel parking along Jefferson Boulevard. You’ll need to be mindful getting in and out of cars along the road
- The playground is not shaded, so you’ll need to pack the sunscreen
- The closest food and drink is in the main street of Two Wells, about 1km away. The Two Wells Bakery (76 Old Port Wakefield Rd, Two Wells) is good for bakery treats, snacks, lunch and coffee.
Corner of Jefferson Boulevard and Mary Lee Street, Two Wells
