Glenside Community Park and Playground Review
Glenside Park is a brand-new public space in Adelaide’s East, offering the whole community access to a variety of leisure and sporting opportunities.
The park opens up 1.5 hectares of tree-lined space with expansive grass areas, a brand new playground, sheltered picnic tables, exercise equipment and a basketball half-court.
We checked out the playspace in May 2021 at the official launch but there was still landscaping and other works around the area so the playground is only now open to the public from Friday 2 July 2021. These pics were taken in May so the surrounds may look a little bit different now.
There is bright colourful equipment to suit toddlers with this cute cubby house with climbing and slide for little ones.
There’s a swing for everybody with two seat swings, a baby swing and a basket swing for sharing.
A half basket ball court is great for older kids.
The large climbing tower with netted tunnels and big slide is great for the more adventurous and older kids. These timber logs lead you up the hill to the top of the tower, or you can climb up the nets to get there.
Adjacent to the playground is equipment which could be used for exercise, some monkey bars and frame which could be used for some Ninja training.
The paths around the playspace are great for scooters and bikes.
The playground overlooks a huge grassy field which is great for ball sports. The playground doesn’t have a fence around it but there is fencing along the major roads, Greenhill Road and Fullarton Road. Always be mindful of any ‘runners’ but the playground isn’t located close to those busy roads.
It’s a great play and exercise space for the community. However, be aware that there are no toilets, with no plans for any in the near future.
