The Green at Carseldine Village

Overview of whole playground @ The Green, Carseldine

Calling all sports-loving families – this is the play area for you!! The Green at Carseldine Village is a newly opened playground that sits within the $6.5 million Carseldine Sport and Recreation Precinct on the old QUT Carseldine site. It has a little something for everyone and is bound to provide hours of outdoor entertainment for the whole family, whether it’s a workout, a play, a kick of the ball, or a relax in the shade.

The Green at Carseldine Village – The Fun

If it is climbing and sliding your Brisbane Kids crave, then they will love the large tower which they can scale at the centre of this enormous playground. Once at the top they can choose one of two slides to slip down to return them back to ground level. The slides are enclosed, but they are metal, so care should be taken in hot weather.

Next to the large tower is a bank of swings, then further down is a separate play area that is tailored towards the younger children. Toddlers will enjoy playing away from the bigger kids, practising their climbing skills on the mini rock wall, clambering across the rope bridge and sliding down one of the three slides. Nestled underneath the fort is also a variety of musical and educational activities (just you wait until the kids find the musical pipes!).

Train lovers will enjoy seeing the trains travel past on the nearby train line. Set a challenge for the children to climb to the top of the playground tower and see how far they can see and how many trains go past in 10 minutes.



Whilst there is no specific accessible play equipment at The Green, there are certainly some pieces that could be utilised by children of all abilities. The playground has a combination of flat concrete paths and rubber base, so getting around in a wheelchair, on crutches, or with a pram is easy. The shade is provided by shade sails, trees, and picnic shelters. Accessible car parking spaces and toilets are also available around the playground and sporting fields.

    Struggled so much finding this- as of today – if coming from Gympie turn right at round about and take last gate 3 entry on left- opposite 64 Dorville road. Follow road all the way down to bottom car park- building and construction going on. Follow gravel and temporary fences

    Hello, Wondering if booking need to be made when using the tennis court or cricket nets. Don’t want to turn up there and not get a chance to play :). Could you direct me in the right place please.
