Doug Larsen Park – The Fun
This is a smaller playground than some of our other WOW playgrounds, but Doug Larsen Park is situated with a lovely leafy outlook, making it perfect for a picnic with your Brisbane Kids. The playground includes slides, heaps of infant and regular swings, a merry-go-round and a climbing net. As well as the playgrounds there’s a basketball hoop, fitness equipment and BMX and skate facilities. Other features include lots of shelters with barbeques for picnics and toilets. We have also listed Doug Larsen Park on our list of places to feed the ducks in Brisbane due to often present residents of the waterway that flows through the park.
Explorers will love climbing the net to reach the top of the mountain and shooting down the twisty slides on their way down the waterfall. The expansive natural aspect of the park and the waterway makes for lots of wildlife-seeking adventures and plenty of opportunities to feed the ducks as little zoo-keepers.
Doug Larsen Park has wheelchair accessible toilet facilities. The playground is unfenced and close to the water, so vigilance with young Brisbane Kids is necessary. There are bike and walking paths and bridges in the park that are suited to wheelchair and pram use. Shelters and barbeques are located in many spots for public use.
