Woolcock Park at Red Hill | Sensory inner city playground
Boasting a fabulous slide for the older children, Woolcock Park also features great bike paths that are perfect for those Brisbane Kids who want something a little extra.
Woolcock Park – The Fun
Due to its close proximity to the Red Hill Special School, Woolcock Park’s rejuvenation has resulted in a ‘sensory’ theme. With the smooth pebbled ‘Reflexology Walk’, solar powered musical mushrooms and a hammock swing, this park is a wonderful and relaxing space for families. Other facilities in the park include a basketball half-court, an awesome slide, swings, nice flat walking and bike paths, leaf-shaped picnic tables and toilet facilities. Whilst it does get quite popular, especially on the weekends, Woolcock Park is well worth a visit with your Brisbane Kids.
The sensory aspect of this park is nature themed, encouraging lots of imaginary wildlife play. Little Brisbane Kids can explore the bush and rocky reflexology path, even spotting water dragons or ducks after rainy weather. Older Brisbane Kids will love flying down the slide and spinning through outer space on the spinning wheel.
Woolcock Park has wheelchair accessible toilet facilities and water fountains. It is also home to an awesome Liberty Swing. You will need to obtain the key for the Liberty Swing from Red Hill Special School (Ph. 3291 9333). The shade sail covered playground is unfenced and is on a rubber base. There are bike and walking paths suited to wheelchair and pram use. Shady trees shelter lots of the park during the day. Tables and electric barbeques are located in mostly shaded areas.
