Are you always on the hunt for a unique new park? Or looking for a lovely spot to sit outside while the kids run free? Luckily in Brisbane, there are beautiful parks scattered across the city. From Harry Potter inspired jungle-gyms, to parks with make-believe roads, here are five of our favourite parks to take the little ones to burn off some energy!
Bray Farm Park Playground
Do you have a little one who is obsessed with Harry Potter? If you do, add Bray Farm Park in Griffin to your weekend agenda. The park has a Harry Potter vibe and is decked out with turrets, bridges, climbing nets and slides. It’s a great day out for all little muggles!
Bracken Ridge BMX Track
Did you know that one of Australia’s largest BMX tracks is right here in Brisbane? The tracks are great for all levels of bike riding, whether your little one is just learning or a little more experienced.

Rocks Riverside Park
Over on the westside, Rocks Riverside Park in Seventeen Mile Rocks is a great place to visit. The park has sandpits, picnic areas, slides, bike paths, a flying fox and more! Throughout Summer, the park’s waterpark is a great place to cool off. What makes us love this park, even more, is that there is a liberty swing (however you must collect the key from the Jamboree Ward Office of the Brisbane City Council).
Hidden World Playground
Fitzgibbon in Brisbane’s north is home to the Hidden World Playground, a gorgeous play area set in a sand pit. The playground has many fantastic slides, ‘sandworm’ frames, boardwalks, bridges and swings.
It does not get much better than Timberland Park in Algester. This fantastic park has its own ‘road system’, complete with street signs and pedestrian crossings. It is an excellent place to take the kids and their scooters or bikes. When they are done scooting around, there is also a fabulous wooden playground fort.
