Calamvale District Park | Awesome Brisbane Playground

With its leafy outlook and incredible slide, your Brisbane Kid is going to LOVE Calamvale District Park!

Calamvale District Park – The Fun

The Playground at Calamvale District Park is a lovely manicured park made up of a range of different play equipment designed to suit Brisbane Kids of a range of ages and abilities. We also love the dual flying foxes that are perfect for challenging the more timid Brisbane Kids in a safe and fun way. It has BBQ’s and seating and plenty of shade making it a great birthday party destination. There are also lots of connecting bike baths and various spinning play pieces to bring about hours of amusement. That said, the reason that Calamvale Park is becoming so well-known must be its GIANT enclosed slide, which lives up to its name both in size and fun!

Imagination Factor

We love the huge suspended bridge which makes for some amazing pirate games, with imaginary trolls underneath. The flying fox conjures up fantastic imaginary adventures soaring through the skies.

Special Needs

Wheelchair toilet facilities are provided at Calamvale District Park. There are lots of concrete paths throughout the park that would be suitable for wheelchairs, as well as spacious shelters set on concrete. The playground is unfenced.

    Awesome place! Bit of a drive from the northside but oh so worth it. Both mine loved it and that will say something. They couldn’t get enough of the slide and swings.

    Took my 20 month old, 12 year old and 10 year old to this park yesterday.
    After a bit of searching, we finally found it.
    Note: This park is not in the Street Directory.
    Drive along Algester Road and turn into Ormskirk or Formby Streets.
    There are signposts along the road to guide you.
    Best park we have visited in a long time with plenty of activities for the little man and two bigger kids to play on. Kids had so much fun, we will definitely be going back again…
