Everything from a fitness circuit to a giant chess board


Boyd Park is located just a 4 minute drive from Nundah Farmers Market, which is held every Sunday from 6am to 12pm. Notable community facilities close to the park include Nundah Memorial Hall, Nundah and Districts Historical Society, Nundah Library, Nundah-Northgate RSL and Nundah-Northgate Scouts. With a wide range of facilities available to patrons to suit all ages from young children to older adults, Boyd Park is the perfect place to spend quality time with your close friends and families, for free.

One of the coolest things that Boyd Park has is their fitness circuit, which is distributed by Playscape Creations - its not something a lot of parks have! They have instructions on how to use each piece of equipment and stress that equipment is only to be used as specified. Boyd Park's fitness circuit includes: step up combo, sit ups, vertical ladder, leg lift, parallel bars, and chin up combo. Now that you no longer have the excuse of not wanting to pay for the gym, it's time to head to Boyd Park and try out all their equipment! For fitness enthusiasts, there is also a 545m walking circuit going around the park.

Walking track.


For the sporty people out there, Boyd Park has a cricket pitch with wickets, in addition to a basketball half court. The basketball court looked very new, as though it had only been built (or perhaps renovated) recently.

Very new looking basketball court!


For families, there is an electrical barbecue (not pictured as it was in use at the time), as well as several gazebos to enjoy your food in the shade. If they're all taken, or if you much prefer sitting out in the sun, there are plenty of grassy areas for you to choose from - bring a towel or a mat and enjoy a scenic picnic in Boyd Park!

Shady gazebos, which as a bonus look really pretty.

Never ending green on green.


For those with little ones, there is playground equipment located under a shaded canopy, to protect your children from Queensland's harsh sun. There is also a giant chess board (which would suit any age, adults included), although you have to bring your own chess pieces if you want to play!

Giant chess board!


Finally, for those with furbabies like me, there is a fairly large dog park with multiple training and agility equipment available. In addition, there is also a supply of doggy poop bags available, so stock up before you head in - you never know if you might need it! If you or your pup look closely, you may find discarded tennis balls and other toys that you can play with too - Eddy found several during our visit, which made him a happy chappy indeed. While the dogs have a romp in the dog park, giving them a taste of freedom, their owners can seek solace through either the gazebo or one of the benches in the shade.

I enjoyed my cold pressed coffee from the markets under this gazebo, while watching Eddy roll around in the grass - was such a perfect morning.

Half the size of Eddy, yet he still managed to play fetch with it.


Eddy and I had such a fun time in Boyd Park - we shared the walking circuit with other patrons who were friendly and generous with their laughter and pats, as well as met heaps of friendly dogs and their owners inside the dog park. There is plenty of street parking available on the weekends. Bye for now, Boyd Park - thanks for a lovely morning!

Certainly it is a park for doing good equipment exercise. Also pets will love it to run around like Eddy.

Hi Jane. I love your articles, Eddy does such a good job too. Have you been to the fabulous dog park in Clontarf on the Redcliffe Peninsula? Kroll Gardens is on the corner of Elizabeth Avenue and Duffield Road. A huge place, about 5 hectares of grassy fields, shaded walks an agility course, park benches and a gazebo. Toilets of course and a watering station. Biodegradable poo bags! Eddy is sure to meet dozens of new friends there, especially on weekends. Hope you get up for a visit and enjoy our little secret garden.
