We visited in autumn but I can imagine this is a pretty popular park in summertime, with its wonderful water play area. The playground is pretty awesome too with a fantastic flying fox, climbing web, basketball court, and bike paths.
Brisbane City Council has recently added another play area to the park which was not quite complete when we visited. With a cubby house, climbing structure, and swings, this is a great excuse for us to go back.
There is plenty of space in the park for picnics. You can either spread a blanket on one of the lush green lawns or set up in one of the industrial looking shelters. With 800 metres of river frontage, The Great Lawn is the perfect place for a picnic or game of soccer. There are five areas in the park that can be booked for parties.
Throughout the park there are remnants; reminders that this was once a cement quarry. Kids can climb the Coral Mound and learn how cement was made using dead coral from Moreton Bay. From the top of the mound, there are great views over the Brisbane River and Rocks Riverside Park.
