Jervois Street Reserve in South Plympton is a regional playground and was opened in August 2016.

The reserve offers something for people of all ages with a fenced junior playground, senior playground, fitness equipment, bike tracks, basketball/netball facilities, a toilet and picnic facilities.

The land was purchased by Council from Renewal SA and extensive community consultation informed the design.

Junior Playground

The junior playground is fully fenced with a sandpit with bucket and pulley and water play all under the beautiful shade of a butterfly.

Kids love exploring the apple tunnel and climbing the log steps to the mound slide. There are also swings.

Senior Playground

The senior playground has a higher-than-average flying fox, wooden climbing frame and a spinning-swinging tyre swing.


There is a gravel "pump track" and undulating bitumen area to test your biking and scooting skills. A 3 on 3 basketball court and netball ring keep older kids entertained.

Circling the site is a path that kids love scooting along and the central area of the reserve has a grass kick-about area with raised mounds so balls don't roll too far away.

Fitness Equipment

There is a selection of static fitness equipment in the southwest corner of the reserve. Climb the bars, do some sit ups.


On the southern side of the reserve are chess tables and a table tennis table. Bring your equipment/game pieces and challenge a friend.

Public art

There are a number of public art pieces throughout the reserve. Find out more about them on our Art in public places webpage.
