Robertson Street Traffic Education Park in Reynella

Stop, look, listen… and go to Robertson Street Traffic Education Park! It’s the perfect place to teach young children about road rules and traffic safety.

Review by By Jo Parkinson

Tucked away in a quiet street in Reynella, south of Adelaide, the City of Onkaparinga have provided a miniature ‘road’ for riding bikes or scooters complete with road signs, crossings and round-a-bouts. There are two different circuits, an ‘urban’ one and a ‘rural’ one. We loved how realistic and well maintained it was, looking just like the real thing.

All the signs you would usually see on a typical road are there, such as stop, giveway, no entry and even traffic lights. The poles that the signs are attached to have a spring in the bottom and bend if pushed, so children will not be injured if they accidentally head off course.

Smooth paths make it easy to ride on, and the roads are spread out amongst enough space so that even when busy, there’s still room to ride without it feeling like peak hour! Entry and exit signs are marked on the ground, and usual road rules apply, so keep to the left and obey the signs.

A handy book is located on the side of the circuits, with a picture and meaning of each road sign. This is a great tool for adults to use to teach children, as everything is set out simply and clearly.

There are two undercover shelters next to the bike paths, as well as a BBQ and toilet block. If you wanted to host a birthday party here, it’s a great spot. Other features in the area include a water fountain, bins, and a good-sized car park. There are plenty of trees providing shade and grass if you want to bring a picnic. The area is not fenced, although other than the car park, there are no roads that are very close to play areas.

A basketball court and tennis court are on the opposite side, so don’t forget to bring a ball. There is a playground too, if the kids want a break from riding around the circuits. Here you will find a swing, slide and climbing net. There is also a flying fox, however it was closed for maintenance on the day we visited (November 2022).

Robertson Street Traffic Education Park is a fantastic place to visit to have fun and learn at the same time, especially with the playground and sports facilities nearby too.
