Your perfect playground wish list has been fulfilled

A huge and well-designed new playground for all abilities in Brisbane's north


Arana Hills' fancy new all-abilities playground checks all the boxes you long for in a playground. The Hills District is incredibly lucky to have it, but all of Brisbane can benefit as the playground is only 12km north-west of the CBD.

Fully fenced - so you don't have to worry about the little terrors disappearing.
Shady seating - where you can enjoy a snack together, or relax with a coffee while the kids run riot.
Toilets - inside the fenced area.
BBQs, water fountain and tables.
Ample nearby parking.
Equipment to suit all ages from babies to primary aged kids.
Design that takes into account the needs of children of all physical and intellectual abilities.

Pre-schoolers love the cute cubby house


What's more, this is a huge playground with a great variety of things to do. Naturally, the tried and tested favourites that never get old are included. There is a sandpit, swings, monkey bars and slides (I counted 7 of those!) But that's just for starters.

Keep cool under the water misters


There's low-level equipment for babies and young toddlers. Bigger kids can take on the more adventurous fort.

When it's time for a peaceful break from energetic play, stroll the beautiful sensory and vegetable garden. While you do, pass under the water misters for a refreshing breath of cool air.

Plenty of shady seating


And if you've been here for hours and want more to do, on the other side of Leslie Patrick Park is ANOTHER fabulous playground. You can also play in the creek (Kedron Brook) that runs alongside the park or kick a footy around on the oval.
