Fun-filled day to take place at St Kilda Adventure Playground
Community members will be able to enjoy free, family-friendly entertainment when they attend the Salisbury Community Fun Day at the St Kilda Adventure Playground on Sunday, 23 October.
The St Kilda Adventure Playground has been a much-loved destination for children and adults alike for 40 years, and has been a great source of fun and laughter in the City of Salisbury.
The community event will feature a wide-range of fun activities, as well as an opportunity to celebrate the playground’s 40-year anniversary.
Nature Play SA will offer a number of exciting activities for eager attendees, including geocaching, tinkering and potion making, seed bombs, and the making of bee hotels.
Those who love to explore can showcase their skills by taking part in a scavenger hunt. Attendees can collect their scavenger hunt kits by visiting the City of Salisbury information tent on arrival.
Other activities include; a nature playground, Marine Discovery Centre’s virtual reality and marine specimens, DJ Bumbles, and kite flying demonstrations.
Food and drink will be available for purchase, including a sausage sizzle hosted by Paralowie Lions, Golden Grove Lions donuts, Cool Drinks & Dogs, Spuds & More, Cuppagino’s coffee & hotdogs and Tackle & Tucker ice cream cart & café.
Travelling to the playground has also never been easier, with a free courtesy bus to be available throughout the day. The Tramway Museum will also be providing free tram rides to the playground.
While the St Kilda Adventure Playground has experienced changes since it was officially opened on 24 October 1982, the precinct’s original identity is still strong 40 years on.
Originally an initiative of the Lions Club of Salisbury in the 1970s, the playground’s construction was made possible through club fundraising, council contributions, and other schemes.
Since its official opening, the St Kilda Adventure Playground has been carefully maintained and upgraded, with the most recent major upgrade taking place in 2016.
The $3.5 million upgrade saw the installation of new attractions, extra slides, electric barbeques, a basketball court, and a makeover of the Cockle Street entrance.
The St Kilda-based community event is the third fun day to be held this year, with the final Salisbury Community Fun Day of the year taking place at Adams Oval on Saturday, 26 November.
