Frew Park Milton
Have you taken your kids to Frew Park Milton yet? Situated on the land on which the former Milton Tennis Centre used to rest, this is an example of urban transformation in what is now a popular recreation space that includes the spectacular playground known as Frew Park.
And what a wonderful play space it is! Tennis courts, a massive green space area, bbq facilities, a cafe and one of the most impressive playgrounds in Brisbane. Make no mistake, this is a destination park … one that’s well worth travelling to even if you live on the other side of town.
Frew Park Milton Playground
“The Arena” playground at Frew Park is nothing short of amazing and perfect for kindergarten, primary and high school kids. The area’s tennis heritage features throughout, but the main theme is one of an industrial building site.
The cement play structure has huge slides, ledges for climbing and parkour, a curling slide that’s five metres high and an enclosed mesh cage that dangles eight metres off the ground! It can be challenging for the younger kids but there are opportunities to scale down the challenges in the way they choose to climb or navigate the play space.
The playground works really well for little ones too but you may need to be willing to have a go on the playground yourself. Aside from the massive climbing structure, there are swings, a smaller slide, large sunken rubber tennis balls to jump on, big beads to move, beams to balance on and all sorts of play gear to touch, spin and turn.
The precinct has a large green space for kite flying, football, cricket and picnics. Flat paths wind their way through the site, making it perfect for trikes and scooters.
Just be mindful that while there are some shaded areas for sitting, the playground itself is not shaded. Pack plenty of suncream, hats and water.
Kids can put their climbing skills to the test on the climbing wall at Frew Park, use the basketball hoops, explore the tunnels and hide in the “control room”. There’s also original artwork around every corner with a mix of industrial “street” images, cityscapes and native birds. It is a tremendous playspace for a game of tiggy or practising parkour skills.
Frew Park features flat paths leading from the car park with disability parking bays are available. The toilet block is on the ground level and ample shaded areas are available. . There is no specific accessibility focused play features.
Frew Park Milton Cafe
There’s a cafe, serving tea/coffee, basic snacks and treats, located above the amenities block that looks out over the playground. Frew Park has spaces for 50 cars but is also close to public transport links.
