Playgroups, parks, reserves, skateparks and BMX tracks - City of Marion

    Recommended Posts

    The City of Marion is a local government area in the southern suburbs of Adelaide.

     

    If you are a new arrival and living in one of the suburbs in the area and not certain of the child friendly facilities nearby this may help get you started. Or if you've been here a while and perhaps want to visit somewhere new or check out parks in other suburbs or towns with the kids perhaps this list will help :smile:
