Bray Farm Park Playground in Griffin
When art and culture combine to create a playground you get Bray Farm Park which is a playground quite unlike any other with a Harry Potter vibe and a Halloween theme, making for a fun and inspiring playground adventure.
Bray Farm Park – The Fun
Tucked away in Griffin, a suburb north of Brisbane is Bray Farm Park. A new park flanked by nature and designed to entertain children and challenge their physical abilities. The main focus of the park is the ‘Harry Potter’ like structure which has turrets, windows, a bridge, fireman’s pole, climbing net and slide.
Brisbane Kids playing at Bray Farm Park can immerse themselves in nature, with the park surround by an abundance of native trees. Perhaps they could even spot koala’s or kangaroos!! There are a variety of bird and animal statues situated in and around the play equipment, which could make for a fun game of I-spy. Large pumpkins and tomatoes are also dotted throughout the park. Children can test their climbing skills on the fireman’s pole or scale the large climbing net, to see if they can get as high as the trees.
Special Needs Consideration
Concrete paths weave in and around the park, and extend beyond, making the area accessible for wheelchairs, prams, scooters and bikes. Unfortunately, however, there is no direct concrete access to the equipment, as the base of the playground is mainly bark.
There are a shaded picnic table/seating and lots of shade supplied by trees surrounding the playground. The park is not fenced, and relatively close to the road, so extra care with children should be exercised.
