St Kilda Adventure Playground Remains Open Despite Arson Attacks
A THIRD arson attack has taken place at St Kilda Adventure Playground in ten days, resulting in part of the playground being closed to the public. However, the majority of the equipment such as the ship, flying fox and stand-alone equipment, is still open and children and their families enjoying what is left of the school holidays, are encouraged to pay the playground a visit.
Anyone who has seen anyone acting suspiciously at the Playground is asked to contact SAPOL who are investigating the arson attacks. In the meantime, the City of Salisbury will be increasing security patrols of the area.
Located only 10 minutes from the centre of Salisbury and 45 minutes north of the Adelaide CBD, the historic seaside town of St Kilda has been a popular destination since the days of the first settlers, when local families would spend the day crabbing, paddling and enjoying the sea air.
Today, St Kilda offers visitors an award-winning adventure playground for children and adults, the Tramway Museum, the Boat Club and Marina and the St Kilda Mangrove Trail and Interpretive Centre featuring a 2 kilometre boardwalk showcasing the mangrove forests of the Barker Inlet.

The availability of toilet, barbecue and picnic facilities in addition to ample parking means the whole family can enjoy an afternoon of adventure.
The St Kilda Tramway Museum features many of Adelaide's old trams from its former tram network with a primary emphasis on the electric tramway system.
Built in 1974, the Museum includes 20 trams, 14 in service; several Adelaide built Melbourne trams, two Adelaide horse trams, four electric trolley buses (including Australia's first), and historic tram rides on 2km of track that runs between the Museum and the St Kilda Adventure Playground.
Preserving every type of tram that operated on Adelaide's metropolitan tram network from 1878 to the mid 1950's, the Museum is one of a kind.
Trams built in New York and Philadelphia that served the Adelaide system are also maintained and the Museum also features Australia's first electric trolley bus and a 'drop centre' that served millions of commuters from the 1920's.
The Museum is open on Sundays and Public Holidays from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and Wednesdays during school holidays.
Children (4-14 years): $6.00

The St.Kilda Mangrove Trail was re-opened in July 2012 following completion of rectification works to a number of sections of the boardwalk.
The southern loop has been permanently closed to the public due to significant deterioration of this section. The northern loop remains open and comprises a 500metre walk along the boardwalk through the mangrove forest to the lookout.
Public entry to the boardwalk is free.
