Murarrie Recreation Reserve – known to teenagers as the Murarrie Skate Park – provides a variety of facilities but none so popular as the skate park and teenage playground. The skate park is well built, well equipped and suited to skaters and biker riders, with its variety of hills and slopes, while the teenager's playground is designed with an older target audience in mind. Instead of swings and slides, visitors will find flying foxes, balancing boards and other play equipment that, on top of being a lot of fun, helps users to develop co-ordination skills essential for skating.
While the Reserve is most popular with teenaged skaters, the park is appropriate for the entire family. In addition to the teenager's playground, there is also a smaller one suited to younger children, as well as a basketball court and bike track; for family outings, there are also barbeques and picnic shelters. The park is wheelchair and pram accessible by paved footpaths.
The Murarrie Recreation Reserve is set against a swampy marsh, providing a great opportunity for children to explore a unique and thriving ecosystem. Bike and walking tracks allow visitors to view the creek system up close, while a variety of wildlife can be sighted on the grounds. The Murarrie Recreation Reserve is located on Wynnum Road and provides plenty of parking. The closest train station is Murarrie, a ten minute walk (or five minute skate) away.
A variety of recreation for young and old makes Murarrie Recreation Reserve a popular day spot for families.
