Fun for all the family at Harrington Blvd Park & Playground
Harrington Boulevard Park and Playground is one of Redland City's newest parks. This park is categorised as a "neighbourhood park" (recreation park type 3), which Redland City Council describes as being perfect for enjoying the outdoors with children, family, and friends.
