Located in a quiet cul-de-sac next to the calm waters, Playford Waters provides residents with a walking/cycling track, a grassy green space and a playground for the kids.

Dedicated to Edith Steed Carter, an Aboriginal elder of the Playford community who devoted her life to helping others in need, the playground is suitable for children aged five years and over.

Feeding Ducks and Other Birds

Please DO NOT feed the ducks at parks, reserves and playgrounds in the City of Playford.

Native ducks and other birds that live on water stay healthy by eating foods like aquatic plants, seeds, grasses and insects.

Many foods that humans like to eat, including bread, can be harmful to native ducks and birds and can make them sick. Uneaten food can also contaminate the water and encourage vermin and foxes to the area.

Rather than feeding the ducks, there are other ways you can enjoy them in their native habitat, such as:

  • Count the ducks that you can see
  • Identify the different bird species
  • Help look after their environment by picking up rubbish
  • Taking photographs

Read more about feeding wildlife at the South Australian Department for Environment and Water's website.
