Hendrie Street Reserve Inclusive Playground Structure 1
This is an off-leash park where dogs can exercise off-leash, except within 5 metres of a playground, at a wetland or when organised sport is being played.


In a South Australian first, a new inclusive playground at Hendrie Street Reserve in Park Holme has been designed to cater for all ages and abilities and includes elements for a broad range of disabilities.

 Consideration has been given to children who may have mobility issues, vision / hearing impairments and spectrum disorders such as autism.

This playground will be a regional playground for the City of Marion.

Bring a ball and shoot some hoops on the 3 basketball court or chill out and watch the world go by on the seating provided throughout the reserve.

There is a toilet in the south western corner of the reserve.

Ample car parking, including disabled parking, is available.
