Bridgewater Mill Playground - Adelaide - Review

We love visiting Adelaide and when we do, we love visiting the Adelaide Hills to see family and friends. Our last visit back in September last year was action packed however we did manage to have some quiet days where we relaxed at playgrounds.

The Bridgewater Mill Playground was one of them. This cool playground reopened in later 2016 after some renovations to cater for kids of various ages. It is located opposite the beautiful Bridgewater Mill and Restaurant. We love the old 1860 water wheel - just stunning!

The playground is located across from the Bridgewater Mill with some parking available for non patrons and public toilets located off Mill Road. It is surrounded by a little creek which is cute to walk across to the playground however supervision is recommended with little ones and wonderers aka my kids!

The playground has a dual swing set, a flying fox, a roundabout, some fun animal seats, a basket swing and more!

Little Miss loved the climbing structure and I reckon when we return this July for the holidays, her brother will be climbing that thing like anything!

There is also a metal slide which can be accessed via stairs and provides a very quick slope so watch out for little ones' head and the slide gets a bit hot in summer too! There is an undercover gazebo with a picnic table nearby and benches.
