Forestglen Park | Browns Plains Family Playground
Forestglen Park is set back from the main road, making this a relaxing place to spend time with your entire family.
Forestglen Park – The Fun
Surrounded by trees and landscaped gardens, one of the main features of Forestglen Park is its popular gazebo and water feature. As well as the man made landscapes, the park also has a rocky riverbed, complete with two little timber bridges to cross. The playground is set on sand and features two separate play structures with slides, swings and rockers. There are lots of shady spots to play or picnic in this park, however the play equipment itself is not covered. Apart from the gazebo, there are two single tables undercover and one larger shelter with two tables. There are also two barbeques – one double electric and one wood fuelled.
The pond area at Forestglen Park is a fantastic spot for fishing games and the trees and other natural surroundings make hide and seek games a lot of fun. Children can spend a lot of time exploring this park, discovering real creatures living amongst the plants and rocks, or imaginary beings like trolls under the bridges.
Disabled toilet facilities are provided at Forestglen Park, though they are fairly small and may be hard to navigate. There are lots of flat concrete paths and landscaped areas throughout the park that would be suitable for wheelchairs, as well as the main modern gazebo set on concrete. The playground is unfenced, however the area is quiet and reasonably protected from cars.
