Hidden World Playground in Fitzgibbon
A wonderful hidden playground with a playful vibe, plenty of open spaces and a magnificent place for active children to explore.
Hidden World Playground – The Fun
Hidden World Playground is a wonderful north Brisbane playground located on a fairly unremarkable suburban road but that is where the ordinary ends.
Be prepared for a crazy colourful playground, unlike any other in Brisbane. It is a feast for the eyes whether you are five or fifty.
For younger kids, Hidden World is filled with long steady boardwalks, generous slides and climbing opportunities at every turn.
A toddler can quite easily negotiate the stairs and it is also built so a parent can easily run after them. It is sand based which makes it additionally appealing for mums of crawlers who are often seen setting the kids up with shovels and trucks in preparation for sand play while their older kids run off and play. If you are heading to the park with kids of multiple ages, consider bringing along some additional play items to really extend the use of the space with diggers, shovels and buckets as well as Matchbox cars.
For pre-schoolers, Hidden World playground is a favourite, with lots of space to stretch their legs, equipment to swing on, walls to climb, poles to slip down and slides to race down. Hidden World Playground is especially popular for birthday parties, due to its capacity to amuse large groups of children. This would also be a perfect location for a mum’s group gathering, especially as the kids get older.
For school-aged children, Hidden World creates the ultimate game of tiggy with plenty of chances to run and get away and also catch and find.
The best play spaces in Brisbane have something magical that transforms them from a functional playground into a place where the childhood imagination can run wild. In the centre of Hidden World is a gazebo and within that gazebo is a manhole. It is one of two manholes that tell of a wonderful story worthy of a tale to your older Brisbane Kids. There are also coded stories written in Sentient Mouse language hidden in various places across the playground. You can get your kids to google for more information if you like, it makes for a very curious story.
There are quite a few all-inclusive pieces of equipment at this playground including a wheelchair carousel, nest swing, disabled swing with frame and the green glider aptly named ‘Sway Fun.’ Hidden World is a sprawling, unfenced playground, so make sure you keep a close eye on all children. The playground is surrounded by flat ground, with some concrete paths, sheltered picnic tables, accessible toilets and designated disabled car parking spaces.
