Climb, slide, run and explore in Hope Valley
Tucked into the North-Eastern suburb of Hope Valley is the Barmera Avenue/Waikerie Avenue Playground and Reserve. This generous space has a lot to offer all year round. Check out the location map here.
The playground is clean, in excellent condition and boasts something for all ages. For the little ones, there's a train bouncer, toddler swing, steering wheels and small slide.
The grassed area is large, with plenty of room for ball games or just having a runaround. Native shrubs are clustered around the park – great for exploring, hide and seek or collecting interesting seeds and pods.
A cement path runs through the park, making bike and scooter rides smooth. A table and bench seats are located under the trees for a shady picnic or rest. There's another seat looking out onto the grassed area. The park also has two lights and rubbish bins.
