Playgrounds with Picnic Areas in Adelaide

It’s always nice to have an area dedicated to resting and having something to eat or drink in the shade (especially for the adults).

Sometimes the kids want to play at the playground for hours on end and all that playing can make the little ones hungry! These playgrounds have areas suitable for picnics which can include seating areas, park benches or tables and some may have BBQs and shelters too. It’s a great opportunity to make a day-trip out of a playground visit, have a picnic playdate or even a birthday party. 

All of these playgrounds have a nearby toilet as we know this is essential when planning a picnic.
