Decker Park in Brighton

Sand play area in Decker area.

This lovely seaside playground is a favourite for families because, in addition to the impressive playgrounds, there is also the lure of the waterfront.

Decker Park Playground

It is easy to spend a day out at the picturesque beachside playground, Decker Park. This Brighton playground has several sections, so it is easy to find an area suitable to the age and ability of your child. Even your four-legged friend is catered for, with a fully fenced dog park situated beside the playground.

Children can challenge one another to a game of 4-in-a-row or noughts and crosses on the cognitive play panels, build sand castles in the Sand Worx area or play on the ever popular, traditional play equipment such as swings, slides, forts and climbing nets.

Not only is the playground a treasure trove of activity there is plenty of other activities to partake in when visiting this park. Why not take a leisurely stroll or cycle along the shared pathways that span the nearby Ted Smout Bridge or along the waterfront to Sandgate and Shorncliffe.  

Alternatively, the calm waters of nearby Bramble Bay glisten in the sun and is a wonderful spot for collecting shells, playing in the sand (when the tide is out) or honing your photography skills. Bring the binoculars for a spot of bird watching, plane spotting or spying cargo ships in the distance!

Decker Park is very popular, especially on weekends, so be prepared to share the space with other families enjoying the great outdoors.

Imagination Factor

Your Brisbane Kids will be able to put their imagination to use whilst playing amongst the equipment at Decker Park, particularly in the Sand Worx area where there are scoops, sand tables, funnels etc. 

Pirate themed play equipment will also evoke echoes of ‘ahoy’ and ‘shiver me timbers’ as little ones peep through port holes and steer the pirate ship into uncharted waters. Given the large and spread out nature of the playground, hide and seek would be another fun way to burn off some energy.
