An awesomely fun, nature-themed playground opened at Apex Park in Ormiston on 1 July 2020, just in time for Queensland kids to enjoy it during their winter school holidays.

The new playground centres around a huge crow's nest, which has multiple options for ascending it. These include ropes and a rock wall, with the entrance to the crow's nest coming up through the centre.

Despite its suburban location on the border of Ormiston and Wellington Point on Redlands Coast, Apex Park is a haven for wildlife that includes many birds, ducks in the creek along the pathway (who love to be fed salad, peas, and corn), and even koalas on lucky days.
