Oriel Park, Ascot

by Sally Foster (follow)
Fully fenced and perfect for toddlers

Finding a fully fenced playground is absolute gold. As the Mum of a very active toddler, I just want to be able to relax at a little when I take him to a playground, knowing that he is fully enclosed in a fun little prison. I mean playground.

Oriel Park is shaded, as well as fenced, by both sails and also big beautiful Jacaranda trees. It is big enough to keep the little ones occupied for an hour or two, but also small enough that you can sit down on one of the benches on the perimeter and have your coffee while they play and be able to keep an eye on them.





If you need some time out from the kids over the weekend, want to enjoy a bit of adult conversation and a relaxed tour of the city, Brisbane Food Safari Club has a new experience starting in July.
You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.
The play equipment is a good size for toddlers and young kids, but there is also some equipment suitable for babies just learning to walk. There are swings, two climbing forts, bridges, see saws and climbing nets.

The best piece of equipment is by far though the 'steam train' which kids can climb into and 'drive. It is great for imagination play and great for train lovers.





Oriel Park is perfectly situated close to shops, cafes and there are also toilets and picnic areas with barbecues. My personal favourite place to pick up a coffee before play is at Vanilla Pod. They are home to the most incredible cakes, pastries and delicious baked goods that will blow your mind. Pretty as a picture and a wonderful place to indulge.

For fit Mums who are more interested in lunges than cupcakes, the council regularly runs active park events at Oriel Park including Mums and Bubs sessions. Be sure to check out the council website for more information on these. They are free and run by a qualified personal trainer.
