Artie Ferguson Reserve is a quiet park in the suburb of Christies Downs. If you're looking for a quiet playground to take the kids to, without having to worry about too many other kids, then Artie Ferguson Reserve could be the perfect place.

The Playground

The Playground features the usual slide and swings, but it has some fun climbing frames, and a tyre bridge for kids to master. It is set up in a way that it could inspire your child's imagination and help them create many games to play. There is no particular theme with the playground, but the kids will find it fun. Sadly there is some graffiti on the playground, which is always unfortunate to see especially on places meant for children.

There is a large field on the Artie Ferguson Reserve, which is perfect for playing ball games. There are no goals or goal posts, so you would be playing a friendly match rather than a serious game, but kids will enjoy just being able to run around. You could always think of other fun ways to utilise the space, like making your own kites and then flying them in the reserve.

Large Field Perfect for Ball Games

The reserve is snuggled inside the suburban streets of Christies Downs, but it is only a short walk to Noarlunga Centre where you will find the Colonnades shopping centre and Wallis Cinemas Noarlunga. This is a central spot if you are living in the southern suburbs, and taking the kids to the park can be a nice way to start or end a day at the shops.

Artie Ferguson is a small park, with nothing that particularly sets it apart from other similar areas. The best bit about the playground is that it is usually not being used. This is great if your children prefer to play on their own as they can have the entire play equipment for their own use. There are no toilet or barbeque facilities so this place is best used for playing or running around.
