Princess Elizabeth Playground, South Terrace
Named Princess Elizabeth Playground in honour of then-Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II) following a visit to Adelaide by the Duke and Duchess of York in 1927, The City of Adelaide wanted to build a playground in keeping with the historical background of the playground and what better playground design than a castle fit for a little King or Queen.
The themed park includes play equipment to suit children of all ages, from toddlers right up to older school aged kids. The highlight of the playground has to be the medieval castle tower with spiral staircase to the top, climbing challenges, ladders and two connecting slides, other surrounding things to do including four mini in ground trampolines, two huge rope climbing pyramids with connecting bridge, stepping logs, horse spring rocker, pod swing, sand pit and climbing frame obstacle course.
There’s BBQ facilities which means you can make a royally good day out of it with family and friends, toilets, bench seating for parents, drinking fountains and a large sporting field nearby also.
