Over the past few months, the Adelaide City Council has relocated and updated the Bonython Playground in Bonython Park. In doing this, they have turned a standard playground into something exciting and exhilarating for all.
The playground is set not far from the River Torrens, where the pleasant views are worth the visit to start with. This area is also known for its abundant bird-life, and bird-watchers can easily use the playground as a base for their observations.
The park is set up with families in mind. There are a large number of shelters with tables and benches, more tables and benches out in the open, and even some plain benches. There are also some barbecues available for use. It is set up beside the kiosk and toilets are not far away from the area.
There is an interesting water feature, with sluice gates, rotating water wheels and a river which kept the children at the park entertained, watching the water or, in the case of one young lad, watching a leaf make its way along the water-course.
Amongst the other equipment is a roundabout, set at ground level and even with seats, quite unlike any I have seen before, a flying fox, an elaborate climbing frame and a rotating cylinder, which - it must be said - I don't think I have ever seen in a playground before anywhere. A very impressive collection of equipment designed for hours of fun and play.
Your article is great however some of the images show temporary fencing up for a music event rather than the open parkland space behind the playground and kiosk. The playground and toilet are wheelchair accessible, and the kiosk is open Fri, Saturday and Sunday and also school holidays.
