Crockatt Park in Woody Point | Seaside Playground
Head to Crockatt Park in Woody Point for that holiday feeling of sea breezes, fish and chips, ice creams with plenty to keep your Brisbane Kids amused for the whole day.
Crockatt Park — The Fun
This park is situated in a beautiful spot near Redcliffe, overlooking the azure waters of Moreton Bay. The main attraction is the long flying fox which will have your Brisbane Kids squealing with delight. There is also a large climbing structure for the older children and confident climbers to scale in order to get a better view of the bay and perhaps even the city skyline in the distance. An undercover playground is nestled between the climbing structure and picnic area and is ideal for toddlers and younger primary school children. A small fort contains slides, play panels and a mini hammock, whilst bucket spinners, rockers and a seesaw are located in the undercover area as well. There is also a bank of swings, which feature a standard and a toddler swing.
To fill those hungry tummies you can either bring your own picnic, use the barbecue facilities or enjoy lunch at one of the many eateries within walking distance. The Belvedere Hotel, situated across the road from the park, is a local institution and has a stunning deck overlooking the water and offers a children’s menu.
Being beside the sea, this park is sure to inspire nautical-themed role playing and adventures. Take the children for a walk or ride on bikes or scooters along the seaside pathways and talk about what life at sea would be like, do a seaside scavenger hunt or play seaside ‘I Spy.’ You could even have a paddle in the water or take some fishing rods and throw in a line — you may even catch something!
Crockatt Park is pram and wheelchair accessible with flat pathways leading from the car park to the sheltered picnic area and on to the accessible toilet facilities. The path continues to the nearby jetty, making for a beautiful seaside walk. The playground has a bark base and is covered with shade sails, though the flying fox and climbing structure is not shaded.
