You know a Playground is fresh when you can still smell the newly laid turf and the iddy biddy trees in the surrounds are still in their protective guards. Well, the Hope Valley Reservoir Playground is so new the varnish on the climbing frame is still shiny!
The Hope Valley Reservoir opened for recreation in 2020, and the new playground takes it to the next level as a spot to spend the afternoon with the fam. The creative geniuses behind such Adelaide nature play spaces as The Morialta Conservation Park Playground, Mitcham Reserve and Victor Harbor CT Fisher Playground, Climbing Tree Creations, have been hard at it and designed a playground on the banks of the Hope Valley Reservoir that will get your kiddos climbing, building… and maybe even bouldering!
All with quite a shmick vista to take in while they’re at it!
- Climbing frame
- Stepping stones and logs
- Free standing teepees
- Balancing logs
- Bouldering rock

The surrounding area is complete with picnic tables and chairs, drinking fountains, toilets and fitness equipment, as well as plenty of grass to run around on or kick a ball, so there really is something for everyone here. There are also easy, accessible walking trails around and across the dam great for a wander on foot, or on your bike!
And with a view like this as a backdrop…why wouldn’t you?
