Phil Denman Park playground
Phil Denman playground is a new and modern park with the latest in playground equipment on offer. The playground consists of 4 awesome forts on different levels with bridges, climbing frames and monkey bars. Ladders, a fireman pole and a mixture of enclosed and double slides act as entry and exit points to and from the forts. While the monkey bars and bridges are a good challenge for older kids, the park also works well for toddlers with 2 swings, smaller slides and a lot of sensory play equipment on the ground level such as steering wheels, gears, mirrors, naughts and crosses games, music tubes and more.
A quick stroll away from the playground equipment takes you into a sportsman’s paradise that will entertain the kids for hours with crickets nets, half court basketball court and a rebound wall. There is a very large open grassed perfect for kids to run wild. The park also has a shared pathway from Loffs Road through to Beanland Street which is great for kids to ride their bikes and scooters on and includes a cute little bridge over the creek that winds through the Loffs Road end of the park.
This is really a park that will entertain Brisbane Kids of all ages. Little kids can princesses, knights or firemen as they play in the forts. Bigger kids can be Micheal Jordan or Michael Clark as they take advantage of the sporting equipment available. The open spaces lend themselves to a game of tiggy, a family game of soccer or football or would be perfect for flying a kite on a windy day. Trees provide shade throughout the park which would be a great place for a family picnic. Really, Brisbane Kids are only limited by their imagination at this park which could entertain families and kids of all ages for hours.
There is no specific special needs equipment at Phil Denman Park, and unfortunately, the park is not accessible to wheelchairs from the Beanland Street entry as there are bollards from the car park blocking access to the playground. Wheelchairs could access the park via Loffs Rd, however, as there is a beautiful walk across a bridge on a wide footpath that would cater for both wheelchairs and double prams. Wheelchairs and prams would have to be pushed across the open grassed areas to access the playground, basketball courts, crickets nets and rebound wall. Currently, there are no toilet facilities.
