Underwood Park – The Fun
Underwood Park is a lovely spacious park with heaps of attractions to suit all ages. There are several playgrounds throughout the park, including a unique Spielart adventure playground and a second large playground that is protected by colourful shadesails. Funderwood Hollow, officially unveiled on 1st July 2014, has been designed for children aged 5 to 16 years and features a fairytale feel with castle-themed towers high above the ground. The design has been based on children’s drawing depicting their own ideas for a fantasy playground brought to life. A range of challenging equipment has been created from durable and natural materials for Brisbane Kids to explore, including climbing nets, rope bridges and a climbing wall, the towers of which are up to five metres high and nestled amongst the trees.
Additional features of Underwood Park include a pedal-powered monorail track that is always popular, as is the fying fox. Climbing nets, slides, swings and play structures provide variety for Brisbane Kids. The BMX track is awesome for older Brisbane Kids, being home to competitions on a regular basis. Other fun attractions of Underwood Park include a dog off-leash area, netball courts and basketball half-court. There are many sheltered tables in the park, and several wood and electric barbeques provided. There’s also a lagoon nearby.
The awesome Funderwood Hollow Spielart playground provides many opportunities for kids to test themselves with the increasingly more challenging equipment, in order to encourage them to make informed decisions and to develop resilience in a safe and secure environment. The fairytale theme is perfect for make-believe games of princesses, knights and scary dragons. The monorail track at Underwood Park is great for younger Brisbane Kids who are not quite up to using the BMX track. Here they can imagine they are zooming around on their own bikes, burning heaps of energy as they go. The flying fox will see your little monkeys swinging through the jungle and there are lots of trees scattered throughout to explore.
Underwood Park does have toilet facilities for the disabled. There are many paths suited to wheelchair and pram use. The playgrounds are unfenced and the park is shaded by trees throughout the day. There is also a generous carpark.
