The Best Playgrounds for Toddlers Around Adelaide

The Best Playgrounds for Toddlers Around Adelaide

We asked our readers to tell us about their favourite playgrounds around Adelaide which are suitable for toddlers or little ones under 5 years old.

For peace of mind, we generally love fully fenced playgrounds for this age group and having some shade is always very handy.

Here is a list of the playgrounds that we have compiled from our own Play & Go reviews and readers’ suggestions that we feel are suitable for this age group.
