Adelaide Playgrounds with Shade

For long days playing out in the sunshine, shade is important to keep everyone safe and healthy. 

Sometimes the trip to the playground can be a long one and in the scorching Adelaide sun, that can be a problem. Nobody wants to have to play on boiling hot play equipment (especially those slides that sit out in the sun all day)! It’s also equally important to have as much protection as possible from sunburn or heat exhaustion to keep the kids safe. Proper shade at a playground can make it much cooler, allowing for longer play periods and protecting the little ones from harmful UV rays.

Shade can come from an abundance of trees or shade sails specially designed to keep out the sun.
