City Botanic Gardens

by Sally Foster (follow)
Lush gardens and a playground in the heart of the city

It is the city's oldest park and a true oasis in the heart of Brisbane. It is bordered by Parliament House on one side and the Brisbane River on the other. There are gorgeous views of the river and it is the perfect place for a walk or a picnic with your family.

The Botanic Gardens obviously play host to some gorgeous gardens. With plenty of Australian natives and lush green lawns, there is the bamboo grove, ornamental ponds and the weeping fig avenue. You can also see what is thought to be Australia's first Jacaranda Tree.

There are free guided walks available from Monday to Saturdays from approximately 11am to 1pm, or you can download a map here and do your own self guided walk with your little ones. It includes some historical aspects and information. You will sound very impressive and educated.

As well as walking around the gardens, you can also ride your bike along the riverfront, which is a wonderful and active family friendly activity. Another active activity is taking part in one of the many FREE fitness activities that the Brisbane City Council runs throughout the year. From BoxFit, Tai Chi and fitness challenges, there is something for everyone. Find out more information on these activities here.

As well as fitness, there are other activities that are happening at this cultural hub all the time. It is the location of RiverStage which is one of the best places in Brisbane to listen to live music. There are also weekend farmers markets and planned activities like Gigs and Picnics.

Probably one of my favourite parts of the gardens is the playground. It is an all abilities playground, and there is equipment for all ages. Some of the facilities within the playground include a large climbing fort, slides, carousel, sensory panels and a sand digger. The park itself is not fully shaded apart from by the surrounding trees, however, is it built on soft fall flooring to avoid any accidents.
