Protea Reserve Playground, Crafers
I might be in a bit of trouble with the locals for sharing this cute little playground up in the Adelaide Hills so you’ll need to promise not to all rush up there straight away!
The Protea Reserve Playground is hidden away at the end of Lesley Crescent in Crafers. It’s by no means the biggest park in Adelaide BUT it’s in such a gorgeous quiet location that it’s well worth a visit. ESPECIALLY in Autumn to see all the gorgeous trees in all their different colours.
The park itself is fairy small with a main area with climbing equipment, multiple slides, sliding poles, seesaws, rockers, some great logs for balancing on and what my 5 year old called THE most crazy and THE trickiest warped monkey bars EVER!
There is a 2nd tier below with a nest swing, normal swing and toddler swing.
It’s not technically fully fenced, but you won’t have any dramas keeping an eye on little ones at this park and the road is really quiet with hardly any traffic (not one single car drove past when we were there)
There is a picnic table and also grassy spots to throw down a picnic rug. This spot was MADE for a picnic! There’s no toilets though, so keep that in mind.
The playground doesn’t have a shade sail but there are plenty of tall shady trees around and you might even be lucky enough to spot a koala!
If you need to, stop in at Stirling on the way and grab yourself a coffee and some bakery treats.
LOVE this little park!
