Frew Park, Milton

by Sophie Cannon (follow)
Frew park, named after the president of the QLD Lawn Tennis Association from 1910-1930, is home to all things tennis in Brisbane.

The park itself has been fully renovated and as well as an amazing playground, large open spaces and on site cafe, it also includes the Roy Emerson Tennis Centre which features six, state of the art, all weather tennis courts. Sticking with the theme, there are a range of services on offer here, such as one on one coaching programmes, social tennis, cardio tennis and even an on site pro shop, fully stocked with the latest equipment and offering a racquet restringing service.

THE ARENA
The children's playground, aptly named 'The Arena' is more like a work of art then a play area, and has a unique, angular design and a somewhat industrial feel to it.

Do you need an updated family portrait?
The park is aimed at children of all ages and has been split into two areas to represent the space for little legs, and the larger equipment more suited for bigger kids.

Younger children can enjoy lots of in ground obstacles including large bouncy tennis balls to jump across, balancing bars, a mini climbing wall, various swings and there's even an interactive sound and music play space that toddlers will go crazy for. The lower ground area is also built on either soft wood chips or rubber flooring to protect little ones from injury.

However bigger kids really get to rule the roost at this one, and can enjoy architecturally designed equipment such as, the huge climbing wall, climbing nets and cages, 3 metre high and wide slide and a 5 metre high, curling, tunnel slide.

The climbing area itself is full of angular ledges and spaces for kids to sit, hang out and socialise and it is the perfect place to drag your older children away from computer games and iPads, to enjoy some classic, outdoor play.
