Teralba Park in Everton Park
Teralba Park is a great location for a picnic, birthday or barbecue and is ideal for younger Brisbane Kids with a variety of play options.
Teralba Park Playground
Situated on the boundary of Mitchelton and Everton Park, Teralba Park is a popular location for picnics, birthday parties, BBQ’s and playdates. It is suited to the whole family, with a great playground for younger kids, along with grassed areas to run or kick a ball, a basketball half court, and a table tennis table (bring your own bats and ball).
The playground features a variety of equipment to encourage climbing, balancing, problem-solving, music and creative play. There is a small vine hedged maze that leads to a large undercover sandpit, swings including a basket swing, spinning climbing frames, slides, and a four person seesaw the family can play on together. A large plastic fort structure features two slides, wobbly bridges, lookouts and climbing walls.
This popular park has huge trees and expansive grassed areas, it is the perfect spot to spread out some blankets in the shade and let your Brisbane Kids have a run.
There are several expansive shelters but they do fill up every single weekend. If you are planning a birthday party here, either get up before the birds or have a contingency plan just incase it is already occupied when you arrive.

The small vine covered maze is a lot of fun for little explorers as they try to find each other or discover the ‘beach’ (sandpit) at the end.
The ‘Pet and Café’ shopfront provides children the perfect opportunity to serve bark cakes, stick spaghetti and pretend cups of tea to their friends and family.
The fort playground has a weather station, corner store counter and plenty of wobbly bridges to walk the plank on.
Teralba Park has clean well-maintained toilet facilities and water fountains. The playground and park have wheelchair and pram access. The playground is partially fenced but not secure, the sandpit is not fenced. There is rubber soft fall matting around most of the playground with soft bark chip on the rest. The majority of the playground is under huge shade sails but the fort structure and the swings are exposed. The park has off-street and on-street parking. There are four shelters with tables and seating and three free electric BBQ’s. It is popular with parties so it’s best to get there early if you want to secure a table.
Please note that the play area is dog-free to keep little Brisbane Kids safe, though dogs are welcome throughout the rest of the park.

If you are seekng coffee, you will find a drive through Zarrafas up on Queens Rd (about 5 minutes away). It is just next door to one of our favourite North Brisbane cafes, Birds and the Bees who also serve amazing coffee and incredible food with a small play area for kids. Birds and the Bees Review.
How to get here
Teralba Park is located on the corner of Osborne and Pullen Roads in Everton Park. Teralba Park is quite expansive. The best place to park for a play in the playground is in the carpark near the Scout Den on Pullen Road, but it is does fill up quickly, especially on weekend. If that carpark is full then you will find street parking all along Pullen Rd or on Teralba Street. If you have little ones, you might prefer Teralba street because it is shadier and quieter than Pullen Rd.
