McKellar Terrace Reserve in Morphettville is a neighbourhood playground and was upgraded in 2013. It features a playground, tennis courts and a shady reserve.

Northern End

The playground includes a multistation with slide, a basket swing and a carousel. A wooden balance beam zig-zags on the Cobham Avenue side of the reserve.

The upgrade incorporated a meandering compacted gravel path and landscaping around the large trees which has enhanced the natural qualities of the site and accessibility.

The park is a great place for the family to visit with picnic facilities including a BBQ, shelter, drinking fountain and seating.

Southern End

The southern end of the reserve has lots of shady trees, bench seating and a tap - perfect for spending some time with your favourite pooch.

Morphettville Reserves Minor Works

Minor upgrades were proposed at:

  • McKellar Terrace Reserve
  • Denham Avenue Reserve
  • Kellett Reserve Land

Consultation occurred via Making Marion from 1 March to 22 March 2021. The outcomes are listed in the engagement report below.

Denham Avenue Reserve will be upgraded with two picnic benches, one seat, and minor landscaping. The garden bed inside the tennis court at McKellar Terrace Reserve will be replanted. Kellett Reserve Land is a biodiversity area and will be planted with native trees and shrubs to enhance the site. A pathway following the current informal trail through the reserve will be formalised. It has been proposed to investigate a 3v3 basketball court at these reserves. These minor works were completed in 2021.
