Parks and Playgrounds
There are a number of small parks, playgrounds and dog parks hidden around this awesome suburb, here's one of our favourites:

Majestic Park


Majestic Park, Coorparoo
A fairy tale themed park that is a firm favourite with local families; especially on the weekend. Although the park itself is not huge, with a small play area in each corner, there is still plenty for kids to do. Play equipment includes a wooden castle cubby and dragon drawbridge, swings, slides, climbing wall and dragon footprint walking trail, as well as a read along, fairy tale display.

A long pathway encircles the park, perfect for bike riding and there is plenty of grassland for ball games and picnics. The park also includes a BBQ, ammenities block, shaded picnic areas and on street parking a plenty!

Address: Majestic Park, Corner of Eva and Pelham Streets, Coorparoo 4151.
