Abbeville Street Park in Brisbane’s Upper Mt Gravatt features a small fort style sheltered playground for Brisbane Kids to enjoy. With swings for infants as well as bigger kids, slides, a spring seesaw and climbing nets, its use is limited by its lack of toilets.

There is a basketball half-court for older kids and wide bike and walking paths perfect for bike riding and scooting.
