Brisbane's Best Southside Playgrounds

by Sally Foster (follow)
These southside playgrounds all offer something special

Whether you are new to Brisbane, new to the southside, or just tired of going to the same old playground and want to vary your routine, then here is the inspiration you are looking for. All of these playgrounds have been tried and tested by a Brisbane Mum, and each offer up something special.

Here is our pick of the best playgrounds on the southside of Brisbane. Do you have any more to add?

For other areas of Brisbane, why not try out:

Thompson Estate Reserve, Greenslopes

What's so special? It is a fully fenced new playground with nice new equipment. It is right next to Monkey Bar Cafe, which is an excellent family cafe.

Where is it? 98 Victoria Terrace, Greenslopes

See Here for a full review of this playground.

Karawatha Forest Park, Karawatha

What's so special? Instead of play equipment, there is a nature play space designed for your little ones to use their imagination and is great for sensory development. You can spend time in the great outdoors and also visit the Discovery Centre.

The park is home to various playground equipment including climbing frames and nets, swings, water and sand play for little ones, climb on digger apparatus, roundabout, seesaws and plenty of other apparatus kids will love.

Harmony Gardens, Dutton Park

What's so special? Aptly known as the Butterfly Magic Play Space, there is a butterfly theme throughout and lots of sand with excavators for kids that love to play with 'diggers'.

Brisbane Corso Reserve, Yeronga

What's so special? A lovely little playground by the river at Yeronga, there is access to riding a bike then stopping for a play. More suitable to the little Brisbane kids but also lovely for a family picnic.
