Adelaide Toddler Playgrounds

Point Malcolm Reserve – Semaphore Park

By  | 

Have you seen the NEW playground on Military Road at Point Malcolm Reserve? It looked fantastic so we had to pull over and have a play and of course tell you all about it…

The covers are off on a one million dollar project funded by State Government and City of Charles Sturt Council (who are continuing to impress with their amazing open space developments)

Its located in one of the most popular destinations of Adelaide – Sensational Semaphore! Just in time for summer with the beach a stone throw away its a double date of fun for the family.

5  Things I loved about this playground

  • Location! Location! Location! Situated walking distance to the beach (100m) – this is sometimes a rarity so double the fun in one play date
  • Easy parking nearby
  • Mix of activities for young and older kids including nature play, basket ball courts, advanced climbing equipment and lots of grass areas
  • Landscaping was fantastic for all inclusive environment

5 Awesome playground features include

  • Giant Slide
  • Big Musical Instruments
  • Flying Fox
  • Recreational Facilities – Tennis and Basketball courts, BBQ
  • Great Climbing challenge

5 tips to consider

  • Minimal shade clothes so do not forget your hats!
  • Bring some swimmers and bucket and spade for a hot day – the beach is so close
  • The playground is not fully fenced so if you have a few little ones and only two eyes …. keep this in mind
  • Some younger kids got a little scared and stuck on the net crossing… be mindful of how high it is

5 little extras

  • Toilets are located next door at the surf life saving club
  • Council is addressing concerns re safety crossing the road due to its traffic volume
  • BBQ facilities with benches but not overly large capacity – back up is a picnic rug on the grass
  • Safe landing ground with rubber and bark
  • Can get crowded at morning times
