Spider Swing

Gerry McMahon

Located on the south western end of the city’s fringe the Princess Elizabeth Playspace integrates natural park land aspects with the state heritage listed shelter shed and original 1929 design elements of the central path including the division of the playspace into two activity areas, with contemporary active, cognitive, sensory, passive and creative play opportunities. The Spider Swing is an integrated artwork that helps create an imaginative environment for children to explore their world.

This artwork was commissioned by the City of Adelaide for the upgrade of Princess Elizabeth Playground.
