Warner Lakes Playgrounds
This is a little unusual but we put 2 playgrounds in the one estate together. We did this for a couple of reasons. We do wonder if by themselves they meet our ‘WOW’ standard, but together and considering they are a short drive apart we think they would qualify.
The first playground is on Pallis Drive and you will see it as you come through the Warner Lakes Estate. It is best suited to older kids with numerous challenging climbing opportunities and unsual gross motor negotiations. This is not the traditional playground. Shade over the playground itself is limited but there is a nice shady place to sit in the middle and several shaded eating areas with BBQs. Downside? its right next to a lake, unfenced and there are no toilets. However, for older Brisbane Kids this is an impressive playground with a chance to show climbing prowess and explore challenging playground installations.
The 2nd playground is known as the HMAS Warner and is further along via Caspian Parade. It is more suited to younger Brisbane Kids with a traditional fort like structure with a slippery slide, swings and the obligatory bouncy frog. It is completely shaded and also has BBQ spots. The downside again is that it is right next to a lake, unfenced and there are no toilets. However, it is a lovely playground for toddlers and nice and shady for mums and dads.
Now, these playgrounds are new and we will keep and eye on them to see if as the Estate grows perhaps there will be improvement made like the inclusion of fencing and toilets.
