Grinstead Park Playground
Grinstead Park features an impressive fort style playground under huge shade sails with swings, slides and various other activities for a range of abilities. Standing balance swings, a large nest swing and ‘shop’ add to the attraction of this impressively sized playground. Additional to the playground is a basketball court and also outdoor fitness equipment. The park features BBQ facilities, shelters, several park benches and is close to a skate bowl for older children. It has toilet facilities and ample off-street parking.
Grinstead Park offers many opportunities for bike riding, with paths leading all over the north of Brisbane. There is a watercourse right next to this playground which isn’t obvious to kids except for the cute bridge that connects to the skate park and flat open grassy spaces. We have had a tiny issue with our kids wanting to cross the bridge but it is a good 10 metres at least from the playground.
Whether it’s by rolling down the grassy hills or simply laying in the grass cloud-spotting, your Brisbane Kid can enjoy the masses of space on offer at Grinstead Park. The fort playground is perfect for playing pirates and princesses in castles. For slightly older Brisbane Kids, the bridge and adjacent grassy areas provide opportunities for adventures into the unknown and nature-spotting.
Grinstead Park has accessible toilet facilities and water fountains. There are many paths suited to wheelchair and pram use, though many are also not flat. The playground is unfenced but shaded by giant shade sails throughout much of the day. The fort features access via a ramp and there are several activities suited to all abilities. There is a generous off-street carpark for convenience.
