Fun for children and adults too
Fun climbing equipment

During the hot Brisbane summer, shade is an important feature of any children's play area and Ruby Robinson Playground has plenty of shade. The excellent equipment sits beneath giant Royal Poinciana trees (great for hiding and climbing in) and tall gum trees. There are bike tracks leading to and from the playground which also follow shady pathways along Enogerra Creek, through the nearby suburbs of Wilston, Newmarket and Windsor.

The playground lies within Downey Park, not far from The Royal Brisbane Hospital (RBH) and about 100 meters from Northey Street City Farm. It is a great spot to play any day of the week, but would top off a Sunday morning trip to the nearby Northey Street organic farmer's markets.

Take a BBQ or picnic to make the most of the free gas BBQs and undercover picnic tables. There are a range of swings, merry go rounds, slides and climbing frames (including a giant spider web tower) to keep little ones and older ones entertained. After the fun of the park, why not take the family for a wander through Bowen Bridge Heritage Trail to learn a little about the local indigenous people and enjoy the salty mangroves?
