George Willmore Park in Ferny Hills | A Community Park for All Ages
George Willmore Park in Ferny Hills is jam-packed with equipment to keep Brisbane Kids of all ages entertained for hours, as well as having plenty of space to run free and lots of trees to provide many spots for a family picnic in the shade.
George Willmore Park – The Fun
This is a well-resourced park with something for Brisbane Kids of all ages and is a popular venue for children’s birthday parties. For younger children there is a wide variety of playground equipment including climbing frames, spinning toys, swings, slides, forts, and a pedal powered ride.
Older children can bring their bikes or scooters and ride their way around the perimeter of this large park. For cricket enthusiasts, there is an open cricket pitch as well as cricket nets, so bring the bat and ball. There’s also plenty of room to kick a ball around on the big oval, exercise on the equipment provided or dance around on the stage. A basketball court offers yet another activity for tweens and teens. Community events are held in the park throughout the year, including the annual Hills Carnivale and Christmas Carols.
In addition, the park is located next to Ferny Hills Swimming Pool (complete with toddler pool) which is perfect for cooling off in after a hot morning or afternoon at the playground.
Your Brisbane Kid can imagine they’re rock-climbing up a mountain, spinning through space on a “comet” or riding a giant grasshopper. The diversity of play equipment means a diversity of play experiences for Brisbane Kids. Encourage your Brisbane Kids to look up at the possum boxes in the tall gums and spot the galahs that love to flock together in this park.
The playground and toilets are wheelchair (and pram) accessible along bike paths that connect the different sections of the park.
