A day in the park


Posted on 21 Jun 2019

There's plenty to keep the whole family occupied in the Adelaide Park Lands

The Adelaide Park Lands doesn’t just have gardens, ovals and native vegetation, it is also home to array of sporting and play areas. Pick a different sport for each day of the week as there are tennis, basketball, netball and pétanque community courts. There are also trails to walk or cycle along and the Kurangga BMX tracks (suitable for all levels).

Scattered around the city and Park Lands are an array of playspaces including a giant chess set and table tennis tables in Whitmore Square and the fully fenced Marshmallow Playspace for young children. For a great day out head to the Bonython Park Activity Hub which has a 25 metre flying fox, wheelchair accessible merry-go-round, giant mouse wheel, water play and a chance for children to become an archaeologist and dig for bones in the sand pit! There is also the Road Safety Centre with a mock roadway to assist in teaching kids the road rules and how to ride their bike safely.

The Adelaide Aquatic Centre

Located in the northern park Lands, the Adelaide Aquatic Centre is fun to visit any time of year. There's two leisure pools (Octopool and Cascade Pool) with water slides, a diving pool, and picnic and BBQ areas, making for a fun filled day out for the whole family.
