In a brand new, four hectare development within the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha, the Kuta Kids Playground is a unique and exciting play area to visit.
Kuta Kids Playground — The Fun
Opened in 2015 as part of the Legacy Way tunnel project, this park is the latest addition to the many fun-filled attractions at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mount Coot-tha. Just follow the accessible pathways around the new 18 megalitre lagoon and you’ll find this modern yet refreshingly natural looking play area that kids of all ages love.
The playground has a big climbing frame, swings and slides set into a slope. There is also a great dome-shaped climbing feature that’s perfect for making a den inside. Plus there are lots of wide grassy spaces that are perfect for picnics and ball games. There is also a brand new toilet block with accessible toilets, and there are plenty of shelters with picnic tables and water fountains all around the playground. Plus, once you’ve finished playing in the park, you can enjoy all the other attractions within the gardens!
The highlight of this playground is the way it invites and entices kids to play with and amongst the natural features. The playground is set amongst ecologically designed drought resistant gardens and has a lovely natural theme. There are natural bases such as sand to play with, and a dry stream bed with pebbles and rocks to sort and stack. There are balance logs to walk along, as well as little laneways and stepping stones to lead kids on an adventure to explore other little areas. With all the sights, sounds and smells of the Botanic Gardens all around you, this is the perfect place to spend a fun day in nature!
