Local Council Playgrounds & Parks in South Australia

South Australians are lucky to have a mild climate and lots of open space to enjoy local parks, playgrounds and walking trails.

South Australian councils maintain thousands of roads, footpaths, bike paths and cycling trails. They establish parks, gardens and playgrounds and provide other infrastructure to support their use such as public toilets, seating, tables and drinking fountains. Councils invest heavily in sporting facilities such as recreation centres, ovals, courts and swimming pools and associated lighting, grandstands, clubrooms and changerooms.

SA councils, for the swings, rides and slides!
