    The park at Maslin Beach. It is new and beautiful. Has play equiptment, bbq, the huge coastline and swimming beach (no not nude) and massive grass area.

    You should add the road safety park on robertson street reynella. They have two tennis courts that were revamped. One was made into a road safety circut and the other is for remote control cars. They are awsome. ?

  • Leia says:

    Hallett cove has a new large playground. It must be added to the list ☺️

  • Nicky says:

    St kilda

  • Tania says:

    A new one off Curtis Road Munno Para West might be good to check out

  • Michelle says:

    Thorndon Park Reserve in Paradise is a huge park. Set around the old reservoir there is walking trails through the natural wetlands and you can take along bikes and scooters to roam around on too. There are plenty of ducks and other wildlife to spot. Plus the playground offers play equipment for children of all ages and abilities, including a liberty disabled swing.
    The best thing about the playground is that most of it is covered by shade cloth. A must in summer…

    However it is not fenced and the lake is nearby, so caution must be taken with little ones.

    My grandsons love the Princess Margaret Playground Byron Rd Black Forest they call it The Train Park because the trains run alongside the playground

  • Lindy Rattigan says:

    St Kilda with it’s new upgrade. The full rebuild opens November 22…it’s well worth the drive. Grassed areas, pucnic areas, and plenty of options for the kids.
