Surrounding the playground is a wavy pathway, adorned with lovely mosaic butterflies (these were made in collaboration with local school students). There are two brightly coloured forts, once of which offers tactile sand play with pulleys, buckets and chutes. The other fort is much smaller, with a mock cafe/shop underneath.
Onsite facilities include exercise equipment, picnic shelters, barbeques, toilets and a bikeway. More adventurous visitors may cycle or walk across the Brisbane River using the footbridge to the University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus.
