Foxfield Reserve, Maryvale Road, Athelstone, South Australia

by Lucy Mulvany

Situated amongst mature gums with plenty of shade, Foxfield Reserve is a beautiful spot for a children’s playground.The Reserve is at the base of Blackhill and its conservation park - it is a combined area which provides a tennis court, an oval, a creek, a scout hall, toilets, walking trails as well as a gorgeous adventure playground.

Painted in simple and natural colours to blend in with the local environment of bush,

Foxfield playground is a little deceptive in its simplicity. The play equipment ranges from a small slippery dip for littlies, to firemen’s poles, rope bridges, spiral climbing frames and a climbing wall. It would be easy to spend an hour or two experimenting with all of the play equipment.

Suitable for children of all ages, the playground is well maintained and underfoot bark chip is replenished regularly. With plenty of free parking and toilets, as well as picnic tables and seatings in close proximity to the play equipment, this is a perfect park for parents to take children of all ages. The swings include a baby bucket seat, and the tennis court is free to hire. (The tennis court is also ideal for learning to ride a bike without trainer wheels…)

There is disabled access for both the play area as well as the toilets, and dogs are allowed, on a lead only. A water bubbler and a shelter make the facilities complete.  For morning tea options there is a local shopping centre very close by with an excellent bakery and coffee shop.

The adjoining oval is stunning and surrounded by more glorious gums as well as the creek and a multitude of walking tracks. It makes a sensational and peaceful picnic spot for families with children.
