Darlington Parklands, An Epic Super Park Near Brisbane
Yarrabilba Park is settled between Brisbane and the Gold coast area, not far from Logan. the park features a water play area and is dubbed one of the newest "super parks" by reviewers in the Brisbane/Gold Coast region.

What's so great about the park?

The playground equipment is well thought out. Made of timber and rock features it blends into the bushland scenery. The toilets are close and everything is set out so your children are easy to supervise from almost any spot in the park.

Can You Swim At The Water Park?

The water is just over ankle deep, so don't pack your boogie boards. This is fantastic for young kids who will still need constant supervision, but you can breathe a little easier in shallow waters.

The Water Play area is surrounded by seating. The trees are still developing but coupled with the shade sale it provides enough to be comfortable on a hot day.

What Kind Of Equipment Is At The Park?

Caged Basketball Court
Water Play Area
Plenty Of Seating
Twin Flying Fox
Several Slides, Climbing Equipment
Plenty Of Signage
Free Wifi
Surrounded by Bushland & Ponds
Great Parking
Huge Grass Picnic Area
Block Of Public Toilets
Plenty Of Bins
Outdoor Gym

The outdoor gym also has kids sized equipment, my children found the miniature size treadmill amusing. Yarrabilba has a free Parkrun event which you can check out HERE.

I have done a little research and in the past outdoor cinema events, light shows and other events have been held at Yarrabilba. Events are updated on the website.

Our day at Yarrabilba was pretty amazing and I highly recommend a day trip, we went on a weekday during the holidays so it wasn't very busy.
