The playground is partially fenced (there’s a fence running along the internal park road, but it’s not an enclosure).

On weekends and during school holidays, you will find families enjoying the expanse of green space which lends itself to games of frisbee and other informal family games. It is also home to many local events and activities including some of the Brisbane City Councils active parks activity program.

Brisbane Kids will love climbing to the top of the pyramid climbing net, surveying their kingdom from up high. The double slide is perfect for racing friends down the slippery slopes.

Rocket Park would also make the perfect location for a space themed birthday party and even a fun stopover on the way home from a visit to the Sir Thomas Planetarium.
