Brisbane's Best Inner Suburb Playgrounds

by Sally Foster (follow)
Our top picks of playgrounds in the inner suburbs

If you live close to the CBD, or feel like playing tourist for the day, then these awesome playgrounds in the inner suburbs are well worth a visit.

They are all tried and tested by a Brisbane Mum and offer up something special. If you know of any others we should add to the list, please let us know!

Captain Burke Park Playground, Kangaroo Point

What's so special? With spectacular views of the Story Bridge, this maritime themed playground is the perfect spot for a picnic by the river while the kids have a play in the playground.

Where is it? 117 Holman St, Kangaroo Point

New Farm Park Playground

What's so special? It is probably one of the best playgrounds in Brisbane as the play equipment winds through fig trees and there is something for all ages. It is very popular on weekends, with the Jan Powers Markets running, but as well during the week with kids activities happening at the Powerhouse.

Where is it? 1042 Brunswick Street, New Farm

Victoria Park Playground, Herston

What's so special? This fully fenced playground features a huge raised cubby house which has a play kitchen, two small slides and an undercover basement filled with tool boxes and trucks. On weekends, Victoria Park often has a jumping castle and other kids activities going on and if you have older children they may be interested in a game of the parks famous putt-putt.

Where is it? 309 Herston Road

Riverside Green Playground, Southbank

What's so special? This brightly coloured playground has platforms to climb, ropes to clamber and many slides to choose from. There is also some smaller structures for babies and toddlers. It is within all the action of Southbank so lots to do after a play including swimming and restaurants.
