Alfred St Playground Walkerville
Nestled in next to the Walkerville sports oval this is a lovely local playground that you would not even know existed.
It does have a few downs but what a shame it would be if we didn’t share it with you as we do think it is a good one for a short visit. Suited mainly for toddlers and kindy aged kids with a few other pieces to keep the older ones happy.
The first thing that draws you to this playground is the brightly coloured equipment along with the huge orange tubular slide that ends with a smiley face. Lets hope it is all smiles at the end.
To get to the top of the slide you must first work your way up the rope tower that leads you to the platform to utilise the slide. Amazes me how quick the kids always manage to climb these rope towers . They certainly are on trend.
As you then look around the rest of the playground you will see a merry go round , swing sets including nest and baby swing , a see saw and a mound slippery dip.
Our favourite piece here would have to be the gorgeous flower play house for the little ones. Featuring climbing bars ,a tube flower to climb into and through, another slippery dip and more. This is a lovely play haven for imaginative and interactive play.
The play area also includes a shaded sand pit , small grassed area to run around on and don’t forget you have the oval right next door if the older kids want to have a little space and kick the ball.
This play area is fully fenced however besides the sandpit is NOT shaded. Such a shame. It has no BBQs but does have an old undercover area that you could set up you own picnic table.
NO toilets either I’m afraid. You might be able to utilise the oval toilets. A few down falls but we still like this play space.
There are lots of coffee shops along Walkerville Tce (we have tried Nest a few times) plus the Walkerville shopping centre has a supermarket, bakery and the all important toilets.
