Imagination Factor

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. Your Brisbane Kid can practice their balancing on the balance logs, or explore the little laneways and stepping stones. 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!


The playground and 4 hectares of parklands can be accessed along concrete pathways which are suitable for prams and wheelchairs, although do allow a little time to get there from the carpark (see map at link below). There are also wheelchair-accessible toilets. Lots of natural shade, as well as sheltered picnic tables and shade sails over most of the play equipment is a real plus, especially in the heat of Summer.
