Stockland Newport Playground
Stockland Newport Playground – The Fun
Perched on the sides of the canals in Newport, north of Brisbane, is a fully fenced playground that is sure to please youngsters and their carers. Having a café situated directly beside the playground makes it a perfect spot for a mother’s group catch up, weekend brunch with the family, or just a place to relax and unwind whilst the children play. Brisbane Kids of all ages will have fun exploring the sand-based play area whilst climbing and sliding their way through a series of ladders, bridges, climbing nets and slides. The majority of the equipment is probably more suited to older children because of access via climbing nets and the height of the bridge, but the younger children will have fun playing on the swings or digging in the sand (bring your own spades, buckets etc).
Perhaps one of the best features of this playground, other than being fully fenced, is the close proximity to the café, Izba Espresso. The café might be small, but the menu is extensive, reasonably priced and has a great kids’ menu.
Visiting the Stockland Newport Playground will allow your Brisbane Kids to run wild, with the knowledge they are in a safe, enclosed playground. Children can take advantage of the seaside location to act like a pirate, digging for buried treasure or perhaps scaling the climbing nets to look for nearby boats.
Special Needs Consideration
The area surrounding the fenced playground is paved and flat, though once inside the actual playground, the sand base makes it difficult for wheelchair/pram access. The majority of the playground is covered by shade sails. The adjacent café also provides shade for those sitting and enjoying a coffee whilst watching the children play.
