Chapel Street Park in Magill is a small area, that can be nice for a picnic or as somewhere to bring the kids to play. It is a simple park, so if you might want to consider bringing some of your own entertainment. Tucked away in the suburbs, this can be a nice place to escape to.

The playground at Chapel Street Park is pretty bland. It features a small slide, one regular swing, and one toddler swing. While it probably won't keep older children occupied, it is a good area for toddlers. The slide is easy for younger children to climb, and can encourage toddlers to explore play spaces on their own without too many worries on your behalf.

The playground area is covered in chip bark, but is then surrounded with gravel. You might want to encourage the kids to play on the grass to prevent too many grazed knees.

There is a large grassy area at the park, surrounded by trees with only a few scattered in the centre. This is a good area for playing a friendly game of soccer or footy. Bring along balls, frisbees, or kites, and take advantage of the open space.

The grass is also a nice space to have a picnic; it is well maintained and lush. There are no picnic tables in the park, just a few benches, so you'll have to bring along your own picnic blanket if you want something to sit on. There are some nice flowerbeds around the park, that make this a pleasant place to enjoy the outdoors.

If you head to this park not expecting too much, you're likely to have a nice time. It might not be the best park around, but it is well maintained, and this makes it a nice picnic spot or somewhere to take the younger kids.

To find more parks or playgrounds in the area head to the Burnside City Council website.
