Ridgeview Playground Narangba
A play space for all ages, Ridgeview Playground in Narangba will keep your Brisbane Kids occupied with plenty of opportunities for climbing, learning, swinging and spinning. The striking orange and green colours of this newly built playground in Narangba will brighten your child’s day and is full of play equipment, which is designed to be climbed on, spun, slid down and run through.
Ridgeview Narangba Playground
An outdoor exercise equipment station is the first part of the playground kids will stumble across and if they run straight past, they will find a bank of swings, the spinners and then the large, sprawling multi-level fort.
Separate from this fort, you will find a play/learning hut, specifically designed for toddlers, containing various play panels. This hut is low to the ground, so there is no risk of falling.
Older children will be lining up to have a go on the track ride, which is similar to a flying fox. Riders can fly solo or take a handle each and share the ride with a friend.
Another brilliant feature of this playground is the ‘You and Me’ swing. If you haven’t heard of this type of swing, then you should definitely go and check it out. Made specifically for two, a toddle and an adult, you can sit facing each other whilst swinging back and forth. The adult part of the swing is lower than the child’s, meaning both users can be at eye level, whilst relishing in the joy of sharing the swing together.
As with many parks that feature multi-level forts, Ridgeview playground is the perfect place for children to have an epic game of hide and seek or tag. There are plenty of places to hide or escape by clambering up rope nets, slipping down slides or rushing across wobbly bridges. Other children may be more content to perch themselves on a high spot in the playground and watch the surrounding diggers and bulldozers.
Ridgeview playground is a play space which according to the playground designers, Urban Play features, “an ADA-approved ramp allows wheelchairs and walking frames to play alongside their friends and family. The ramp is fitted with play panels which develop social, cognitive, emotional and physical skills. Slides, swings, spinners, a learning play hut and a track ride are among other play items found within the playground.”
Concrete paths lead from the road to the playground, providing easy access for wheelchairs, prams and other walking aides. There is soft-fall base leading from the path to the fort, where users can access a ramp, with many play panels along the walls. There is a bank of swings which includes a nest swing and a ‘You and Me’ swing.
The play area is partially shaded by shade sails and some trees. There are a few sheltered picnic tables, bench seats and block walls for seating around the perimeter of the playground.
