George Scarlett Park – The Fun
If your Brisbane Kid is into all things make-believe, then this cute little park is for you! Tucked away on the side of Gordon Thompson Cricket Field is George Scarlett Park, with lots of open space for running around in, and play shops and play house to foster imaginative play until it’s time to go home for tea! Some of the play equipment is shaded by shade sails, but there are no shelters, barbeques or toilet facilities in this park.
Shop up a storm or be postmaster for the day in George Scarlett Park’s play shop with scales, register, letterbox and phone. The suspension bridge will keep your Brisbane Kid’s inner pirate happy, avoiding sharks in the bark ocean below. There is plenty of room to kick a ball or play tiggy or cricket on the field right next to the playground.
There are no specific special needs facilities at George Scarlett Park; however the “shop” section of the playground is accessed by a ramp from the bark floor. The path from Luxford St stops about 30m short of the playground. George Scarlett Park has no barbeques, picnic shelters or toilets.
