A walk in the park literally
Autumn in Brisbane is the perfect time to take the kids outside and wear them out. 'A big day' equates to a big sleep. Do you agree with this?
Crystal Waters Park in Thornlands is the perfect place for younger children to have a good run and play.
Firstly, the area is littered with tall gums that filter the sun's rays, taking the sting out of the heat.
This parkland nestles alongside the Crystal Waters Lake, an environmental catchment area, so small children do need to be supervised.
This area abounds with ducks and Magpie Geese and many youngsters were having great fun feeding the water birds old bread. When the little ones negotiated the jetty that juts out over the water, there was much squealing and carrying on playing 'spot the turtle'. Swimming is prohibited.
Covered picnic tables provide respite from all the running and playing and I would most certainly recommend packing water and snacks to provide a picnic feel. Several walking tracks provide different access points and are easy to navigate. Many locals use these areas to exercise their dogs, though it is a leash area only.
