Redbank Plains Recreation Reserve
Redbank Plains Recreation Reserve has had an upgrade and the new features will have the kids bursting with excitement when they spot the soaring tower with its gigantic slides. Or perhaps the humongous basket swing, with its ability to swing 360 degrees, will keep the little thrill seekers busy. Either way, this Redbanks Plains playground is an awesome addition to the community.
The Playground Fun
Starting at the nine-metre high adventure tower, the only way up is to climb and it’s a race to who can make it to the top first. Kids will love the thrill of clambering up cargo netting, stepping from rope to rope at the top and then whizzing down one of the two impressive slides. The spiral slide is for the brave, sliding down into the darkness, or kids can enjoy getting some speed up on the straight slide.
The basket swing is one of the largest and best we’ve seen. Unleash the thrill seeker in the family and really make it fly with 360-degree oscillation or luckily there is also a smaller basket swing for the gentler souls. Get your kids to challenge their friends on the parkour style obstacle course, testing both agility and balance. the playground also features a netted spinner, two swings and a spinning disc.
Adjacent to the modern playground is an older, smaller, brightly coloured play space with plenty of classic climbing opportunities, a spinning log, and bouncers suited to smaller Brisbane Kids.
A few hundred meters from the carpark is a skate park. All of this is connected by bike paths and there is plenty of grass to start up a game of soccer.
The tower lends itself to many different imaginative play scenarios, kids could be rushing up it to escape from the ‘baddies’ or perhaps they are a princess high up in their tower. Mini ninjas might take over the obstacle course, or perhaps your children have finally run off to join the circus and are practising their tightrope walking skills. The possibilities are endless.
Off street carparking is located on Cedar Street, which is connected to the play spaces by concrete paths. The bathrooms, which are wheelchair accessible, are located in the carpark. The playground is partially fenced along the Redbank Plains Road and Cedar Street boundaries, however it is not fenced from the carpark.
