The Best Kids Playgrounds in Brisbane

Who doesn’t love a good playground? They are the perfect place to fit in some active outdoor fun with your little one while they interact with other kids and stretch their imagination.

Pine Rivers Park

One of the most iconic north side playgrounds in Brisbane is without a doubt in Pine Rivers Park. This park has so much for kids to explore. Not only do they have the usual fun fare of climbing structures, slides, interactive play and swings, they also offer unique play experiences you won’t find anywhere else in Brisbane. Their star features are the flying fox and a pedal-powered monorail that circles an impressive children’s maze.

Darlington Parklands

Looking for something fun to do with the kids on a hot day? Darlington Parklands is one of the best kids playgrounds in Brisbane that will keep the kids cool and entertained for hours. Located on the south side, Darlington Parklands is a playground, waterpark, and an ideal picnic spot all in one. With a heavy focus on the natural surrounds, your little one can literally play amongst the trees and explore the fun water structures that make this playground so unique.

Frew Park

Looking for a park that’s close to the city? Check out Milton’s Frew Park. Located on the old site of the Milton Tennis Centre, Frew Park boasts gorgeous walking tracks and state of the art tennis courts. The park’s most popular attraction, however, is the futuristic playground. This playground is perfect for energetic kids who love their sports. It includes rock climbs, basketball nets, a giant slide, and of course a mini tennis court. The best part is the cafe overlooking the playground. Pick up a delicious coffee and treat yourself as you keep an eye on the kids.

For playtime up high, head to Calamvale District Park. This south side playground is not for the faint of heart, boasting impressive rope-bridge tunnels hanging high above the ground, leading to one of the biggest enclosed slides we’ve ever seen. There is also a 50-metre flying fox and a kiddies rope bridge playground with interactive play stations for the younger kids.


For kids who love a good game of hide and seek, Kidspace on the north side will make their day. Surrounded by parkland and perfect picnic spots, this is one of the best kids playgrounds in Brisbane that has something that every child will love. From a maze of bridges and towers to swings that cater for all ages and abilities and interactive, musical play stations, Kidspace will spark your kid’s imagination and give them hours of fun.
