Einbunpin Lagoon Parklands – The Fun
Brisbane Kids on the north-side should check out the lovely Einbunpin Lagoon Parklands. Only a couple of minutes’ walk from the Sandgate train station, the lagoon and surrounding reserve is home to turtles, eels, ducks and other native birds. A great sheltered observation bridge allows Brisbane Kids to get a closer look at the wildlife.
A modern and fully fenced playground has been built adjacent to the lagoon, containing a large sheltered play structure and slide, sandpit and an abundance of climbing formations. Large grassy expanses also provide plenty of room for Brisbane Kids to run around, while a picturesque stroll along the path around the lagoon and parkland provides a more peaceful distraction.
Einbunpin Lagoon Parklands features plenty of sheltered and non-sheltered seating and some BBQ facilities, as well as a gorgeous rotunda at the water’s edge. Plenty of parking and easy access to surrounding shops and cafes make spending a whole day at the lagoon super easy and fun for the whole family.
The mounded stepping stones within the fenced playground are perfect for games of leaping across the rocks to avoid crocodiles. Brisbane Kids can spend a lot of time playing adventure games in the fort whilst parents can be safe in the knowledge that they can’t run away. The lagoon and observation bridge lend themselves to conversations regarding the wildlife of the area and great games of I Spy.
Einpunpin Lagoon Parklands has wheelchair accessible toilet facilities, as well as several walking paths paths that can be negotiated by wheelchair or with a pram. Sheltered and non-sheltered seating is scattered throughout, along with barbeque facilities. The playground is fully fenced and shaded throughout much of the day.
