Simpsons Playground in Graceville | Picnic playground by the river
Graceville’s Simpsons Playground, with its nautical themed play equipment, is located right next to the Brisbane River, making it the ideal spot for a picnic with your Brisbane Kids.
Simpsons Playground – The Fun
Located in leafy Graceville and adjacent to the Brisbane River, Simpsons Playground has fun nautical themed play equipment for Brisbane Kids to explore. Activities include slides, infant and regular swings, ladders and spring seesaws. The playground is sheltered by large shade structures, as well as being well shaded by trees. Bench seats are located within the play area for parents to keep an eye on their children whilst playing. The park has a picnic shelter with shade structure and several other unsheltered tables, along with lots of shady grass spaces that are perfect for setting up for a picnic.
Simpsons Playground’s nautical theme is perfect for games involving swashbuckling pirates or fishermen. Octonauts fans can let their imaginations run wild here. The expansive grassy spaces are shady and wonderful for Brisbane Kids to create their own games or for a game of hide and seek.
There is no specific special needs equipment at Simpsons Playground, other than handrails installed in some of the toilets. The picnic table would accommodate a wheelchair if required. There are wide concrete pathways designed for cyclists along the river, but these could just as easily be used by a pram or wheelchair. The playground is unfenced and there is no fencing along the river, so vigilance with exploring Brisbane Kids is advised.
