A park is a great place for a birthday party and we've put together a list of our favourite Adelaide parks for your next kids birthday party. Fenced, shaded, BBQ facilities, clean amenities, grassy areas - these parks have got everything you need for a great day.
Looking for something fun to do with your kids?
Well pack that kiddy bag, throw in the wipes and snacks, and set off on your own mini-adventure. Adelaide has heaps to offer to keep the kiddies busy. We have some of the best events and facilities around and there are plenty of fun family things to do. We have awesome parks, playgrounds, festivals, indoor events, markets, shows, play centres and theme parks. So make the most of our regularly updated event calendar below, and get your family out of the house and create some fun, making memories for your kids to treasure.
Nestled between the red-bricked Goodman Building and First Creek Wetland at the eastern edge of the Botanic Garden, the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden is a vibrant city oasis, developed to inspire a sense of wonder in children about where their food comes from.
The Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden, designed by Oxigen, includes garden beds abundant with seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs; pots and trays; structures for climbing plants; fruit trees; compost; worms; working bench spaces; and enclosed areas – including a large basket weave dome – for storytelling and group discussion.
Garden plots have been divided up into odd-shaped beds with a sawdust path flowing through, creating a sense of adventure for the little visitors.
Another highlight of the Garden is its use of heirloom seeds, sourced from Diggers Garden Shop – the purple, yellow, red and white varieties of carrots, for example, allowing Little Sprouts to display produce not usually found in the supermarket, introducing a new way of thinking for kids and visitors.
Little Sprouts is open to visitors outside of booked Visiting Program sessions. Stroll through the Garden and find inspiration for your own kitchen garden – at home, in the workplace or in the community!
