This new and exciting playground will test your child’s physical skills, and promote imagination, exploration, and creativity.
Morialta Nature Playground officially reopened in September, so I am a little bit late in posting this article. In my defence, I have been too busy enjoying the amazing play areas to write about it. I’m sure a lot of you have already been to the playground, but if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?
Morialta Nature Playground
Mukanthi (pronounced muh-ganthee) is the Kaurna name for the park, which means ‘celebrate and play’. You will surely celebrate and play in the five amazing themed play areas within the park: Eagles Perch; Great Snake; Kookaburra Nests; Climbing Boulders; and Frog Island. There are also creeks, climbing trees, and grassed areas to explore and play.
The entire playground was constructed using all-natural resources, such as restored and salvaged Australian timber, keeping with the theme and ethos of the park. Simon Hutchinson and his team at Climbing Tree, along with Peter Semple Landscape Architects, teamed up with members of the Kaurna tribe to design and construct this $900,000 playground.

What I love about the playground is the peace and serenity. Although it is always busy with school children, playgroups, and families- you can’t help but get lost in the sounds, smells, and sights of the beautiful, vast park. It is only a short walk to Morialta Falls, and there is so much to explore throughout the whole park; both man-made and natural.
As the playground is not fenced, and is near a creek and high fall areas- supervision is key. There are plenty of amenities, such as toilets, and BBQ areas. The park is perfect for birthday parties, family outings, Christmas parties, and even work retreats.
