Before You Go to a Park

Make sure you read our full park reviews so you know what to expect before heading to a local park or playground. Here are some important factors you may wish to consider:

  • Does the park have shade? If it’s not and it’s sand-based be careful of heading there on a hot summer’s day. 
  • Check for toilets, especially if you’re planning on spending some decent time there.
  • Check if it’s fenced. Some playgrounds are partially fenced and others are fully fenced. We have a list of all fenced playgrounds in Brisbane for your convenience.

How can our leisure spaces for families improve?

Our Brisbane Parks Map has a combination of fenced and unfenced playgrounds. What we hear most from families is that we need more fenced playgrounds — not just for all abilities playgrounds but all WOW playgrounds. The investment is an investment in the safety of our children.

Another improvement local families wish to see is more facilities, especially toilets in big playgrounds. While we’ve found that most council-funded playgrounds tend to have toilet facilities, some development led playgrounds do not. Developers should be applauded for their contributions to many of the newer parklands across Brisbane, but should also be working alongside to councils to ensure that they provide the best facilities for our families.

Families also want to see more shade in playgrounds so that they are able to enjoy them throughout the day and know that their children are able to play safely. We hope that more and more leisure spaces will take a sun-safe approach to provide the best and safest spaces for families to enjoy.

    I wish they didn’t have those open (jump off) sections on all playgrounds. Or atleast made them more difficult to get to so older kids could still use them and I didn’t have a heart attack exert time my 18 month old runs for them!

    I might have missed it in the listing above, but one park we have found that is truly awesome is Guyatt Park, next to the ferry terminal. It has a beautiful view over the river, particularly at sunset, and there are two playgrounds, an oval, toilets and barbeques. Both playgrounds are shaded, one for larger kids and one for the littlies, although neither are fenced. Can’t recommend it highly enough, a great place to go for a picnic or barbie while the kids amuse themselves on the equipment. There are even a few shops about 10 minutes walk away for an icecream or takeaway dinner if you are too lazy to cook a barbie!

    I know Landsborough isn’t in Brisbane but it has the most fantastic park ever.

    There is an awesome park in Calamvale. The Calamvale District Park on Formby Street Calamvale. It is a large park set away from the road with fantastic play equipment. The park has a flying fox, a huge slide and more. There are also BBQ’s and public ammenities.

      yeah, that’s a superb park. Also, there’s a great little park at Perkins Street in Calamvale. Has beautiful spreading trees for climbing, lots of shade, plus equipment for young and old kids (and parents, too). No toilets though but good for a short stay.

    Just spent the morning at New Farm park and can’t believe how good it was. Safe, well designed and loads to do. We found it from your site as we are on holidays. Thank you!

    I wonder why there are so many more playgrounds on the northside than on the southside. Are more families living north?

    Recently took my Grandson to the train park at Milton. He loved it!! Was so excited for the 2 hours we were there. Take the time to check it out, really worth it, especially if your child/Grandchild likes trains. Well done BCC.

    You’ve forgotten the park at South Maclean. Loads of tall shady trees and plenty of space to run around and play. They’ve even got BBQs and stuff.
