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.
Your Brisbane Kid will love Hidden World for so many reasons but mostly because it is so welcoming, big (and open) and therefore, allows them the freedom to explore and the encouragement to have fun.
For younger kids, Hidden World is filled with long steady boardwalks, generous slides and climbing opportunities everywhere.
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 up, poles to slide down and slides to race down. For this age group, in particular, Hidden World playground is especially popular with birthday parties, for its capacity to amuse large groups of children. This would also be a perfect location for a mums group gathering as the kids get older.
For school-aged kids, 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. allowed In the centre of Hidden World is a gazebo and within that gazebo is a manhole. It is one of 2 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.
Special Needs Consideration
There are disabled toilets and plenty of flat ground in addition to wheelchair-friendly pathways, but no liberty swings (though it would be the perfect place for it). It is quite a big playground though so you do occasionally worry about where they are if you lose them for a second as the playground is unfenced and expansive.
