Neal McCrossan Park at Paddington | Fenced Playground for All Ages
Neal McCrossan Park is a lovely, fenced, inner city playground for Brisbane Kids of all ages to enjoy, with plenty of shade for those hot summer days.
Neal McCrossan Park – The Fun
Neal McCrossan park is a lovely fenced playground located adjacent to Ithaca Pool & Paddington Community Centre. This inner city Brisbane park suits kids of all ages and presents the ideal chance to chill out with an awesome cup of coffee and relax while your Brisbane Kids have fun and wear themselves out. Located right across from Suncorp Stadium, Neal McCrossan Park would be a great place to go an relax prior to a game or stadium event if you were thinking of taking the kids. There is a popular wobbly rope bridge, climbing net, fort, slippery slides and more to amuse your children for hours. Separately to the playground you will find a tennis court and just out of sight from the main park is a skate bowl. There’s also a fully fenced dog park located next to the playground – perfect for kids who love spotting doggies from a distance, but safe behind a fence.
Wobbly rope bridges and timber forts always speak of billy goats gruff and trolls… a story worth telling before perhaps? The play equipment in the lower, more colourful play area provides for imaginative role play such as flying their very own helicopter, sailing the seven seas, or fishing for that catch of the day. The sheer amount of space and things to do in this park means that Brisbane Kids can create their own adventures within the safely fenced confines without wandering on to the surrounding busy streets.
Special Needs Consideration
A fenced playground is ideal for kids with special needs such as autism, together with multiple births and mums with lots of kids, or those that just like to run. It’s a great park for birthday parties and kids of a wide age range, with colourful play equipment for younger Brisbane Kids in the lower area and a huge timber fort in the upper area. The adjacent basketball courts and skate bowl are perfect for teens. Trees and shade sails provide plenty of shade in both areas, with lots of seating options. There are toilets with disabled access.
