Rymill Park Playground | Whizzing Fun

Rymill Park Playground

Rymill Park Playground

The popular playground in Rymill Park in Adelaide’s east parklands was revamped this year and is definitely worth a visit if you haven’t been lately.

The range of new play equipment is suitable for children of all ages. There are things for the little ones to navigate as well as some interesting equipment to keep older kids entertained. All amongst the most beautiful park setting by the lake, just a short walk from Rundle Street.

There are spiderweb ropes to climb, rings to swing on, a climbing wall and slide.

There are brightly coloured balls, steps to climb, a bridge to cross and another slide here:

Basket Swing

This basket swing below is great for sharing the fun and there are 6 other swings there too.

Rymill Park Playground ‘Whizzing Net’

One of the most popular things would have to be this ‘Whizzing Net’ (I have no idea what the technical name of this equipment might be).

You basically climb on, hold on tight and have someone whizz you around. Kids love it! We made sure of regularly changing the direction of the ‘whizzing’ to help with dizziness.

Rymill Park Playground Facilities

There are great facilities surrounding this open playground. You will find shady trees, some tables and benches, electric BBQs, toilets nearby, ducks to watch, bridges to cross and lots of paths for children to explore on foot or on wheels, as well as the boat rides on the lake.

With the Kiosk nearby for coffee and food, this is really a perfect playing ground for all the family to enjoy!

Please be aware though that the playground is not fenced and being adjacent to the lake, toddlers and little ones need to be supervised carefully at all times.

    Just curious, are dogs allowed providing they are on leashes?
