Spanning over 73 hectares, this Chermside park is one of the largest on Brisbane’s north side. Playgrounds are the big drawcard here, with five dotted across the park. The Kidspace Playground is one of the most impressive – the huge timber fort has bridges, ladders, stairs and rope nets throughout and is totally shaded. The other four parks have monkey bars, slides, a rock climbing wall and plenty of things for kids to clamber over.

The park also has four shaded picnic areas, bathrooms and a fenced off-leash dog park. On the sporting front you’ll find cricket pitches, sports fields and winding bike paths. You can also challenge a friend (or stranger) to a game of giant chess.

The park’s terrain varies from flat grassy plains to swampy marshes. Birdlife is abundant with grey butcherbirds, pale headed rosellas and swallows all calling the park home. It’s also a part of the Mountains to Mangroves corridor – an ecosystem of wetlands, flood plains and urban bushland that runs from Brisbane Forest Park in the mountains to Boondall Wetlands.

I am fortunate enough to live walking distance from this park. My family and I went for an early morning walk through here just yesterday with our chocolate labrador, and it really does take you away into a bush feel. There are so many birds and open spaces, and the walking track is big enough to do a decent 1 - 2 hour round walk. Everyone is very friendly and always says hello with a wave or tip of the hat when passing by.
