Do you rate your suburb as a good place to live, work or play? Adelaide's top ten suburbs for just that has been revealed. 

A CityPulse Adelaide study uses home affordability, crime rates and job accessibility as some of their thirty-five measures to rank the areas. 

The most livable was Plympton followed by Richmond with Paradise/Newton taking out third place. While the city was unsurprisingly number one for work, Toorak Gardens was second and a close third for Windsor Gardens. The CBD also took the gold for most playable area, with Richmond silver and Goodwood/Millswood bronze. 

The top ten suburbs are unique for Australian capital cities as they're close to the CBD and less expensive than inner-city areas in other states.
