What the Thomas E Adams Park lacks in size it makes up with personality. This pint sized playground lies next to the Strathalbyn station, a historical and important spot in the Strathalbyn locale.



The playground at the Thomas E Adams Park is small, but has been designed to fit into the station around it. A red ticket booth, titled the 'Strathalbyn Station', sits on stilts, where children can play train conductor and passenger. Then there is the miniature train for all the wannabe train drivers. It is a fun playground that creates its enjoyment from imagination and role play, rather than the regular sides and climbing frames. The playground also features a swing set.

The park features an information centre, which is your go to spot if you're planning on spending some time exploring the surrounding town. Find out what is on offer, and where to head next. The information centre is undercover, so you can pop in to check out local information even when the weather isn't that great.



There are barbeque facilities at the park, which make it an ideal spot for a small gathering or picnic lunch. There are some tables and chairs available, and a nearby toilet block. There isn't that much lawn space around the park, so it isn't particularly ideal for playing ball games, but there is still place for children to run around.



The park sits right next to Strathalbyn station, where you can find information on the historic train routes. The playground is also a great spot to keep children entertained while you're waiting for the SteamRanger. Check it out next time you're down that way.
