The best playground slides in Adelaide

By  | 

Just for a bit of fun we thought we’d put together a bucket list of Adelaide’s best slides for you to tick off for the school holidays….because really who doesn’t love a slide, and with all the amazing new playgrounds popping up all over the place at the moment you don’t have to drive too far out of the CBD to find one.

Make sure you tag us @kidsinadelaide on Facebook or @kidsinadelaide1 on Instagram when you’re sliding, we’ve got some prizes to giveaway for our favourite slide snaps in the October School Holidays.
