Food and words.

Chapman Reserve is in the McLaren Vale region, and is a spot where you can view vineyards while you sit and eat your lunch. The reserve is a nice place to stop off if you have kids because they can play while you relax.



You'll find the City of Onkaparina Rotary Playground on Chapman Reserve. This is just a small playground, but the kids will enjoy it. There is one slide, some swings, and a type of seesaw. It is a fairly ordinary playground with no defining features. For kids who love to run around there is also a large bit of open space where they can play ball games, or games like chasey or cops and robbers.

If you're thinking of eating lunch at Chapman Reserve then there are some nice places to set down a blanket and have a picnic. You can also use the undercover tables and benches to enjoy your food. There are two barbeques on the reserve so you can also cook up some delicious meat. If you're planning on spending a fair while at the reserve it will be a relief to know that there are toilet facilities.



Chapman Reserve can also be found along the Shiraz trail. This is a trail that runs through McLaren Vale to Willunga. The trail can be taken by foot, by bike, or even by horse. This is a great way to see the beautiful McLaren Vale and Willunga areas, and it gives you a chance to fully explore the townships. Stop off at Chapman Reserve, and then continue along the trail to catch some more sights.
