10 Best Kids Parks In Logan

Logan City is a pretty big place, but you needn't waste precious time - or sanity - driving around looking for the perfect children's playground. Read on to discover exactly where to find the 10 best kids parks in Logan:

Outlook Park

Tucked away in a newish Park Ridge estate, this brightly-coloured playground ticks all the boxes for every age. Toddlers have their own special zone, featuring interactive play equipment, multiple swings and plenty of sand to cushion any possible falls. Bigger kids will enjoy the climbing web, towering slide and fancy basketball hoop which doubles as a soccer goal...more

Stoneleigh Reserve

Treat the kids to a day on the farm at this lovely country-themed playground in Logan Reserve. Inspired by the actual working farms of the area, this five-hectare park is divided into three different zones - the Farmyard, Farmhouse and Paddock. The possibilities for imaginative play are endless, and kids may even make some new friends in the form of the (rather lifelike) cow and chicken sculptures...more

Funderwood Hollow 

This stunning adventure playground takes pride of place in Priestdale's Underwood Park, and is sure to spark the imagination of all who set foot here. Better suited to children five years and older, the fairytale-esque fort features rickety bridges, climbing nets and walls, plus a firemen's pole. There's a pedal-powered monorail and flying fox nearby, plus a great shaded playground for the younger kids...more

Darlington Parklands 

Located in Yarrabilba towards Logan's south, this super park is well worth the drive. Play equipment on offer includes twin flying foxes, forts, tunnels, slides and a rope bridge, plus there's the added dimension of water play. Much of the water areas are targeted at the littlies, but older kids will find it hard to resist running through the randomly-spouting water fountains...more

Riverdale Park

This sprawling grassy park in Meadowbrook provides the perfect opportunity for children to reconnect with nature. Enjoying views of neighbouring horse paddocks and the Logan River, Riverdale Park features a small lagoon, bustling with bird life. There's also a ship-themed playground and a parkour circuit for those seeking exercise with a difference...more 

Underwood Park 

As well as being home to the spectacular Funderwood Hollow (see above item), this Priestdale park has loads to keep kids busy. There's a half basketball court, sporting fields, bike paths, plus skate park, BMX track and around eight kilometres of beginner-level mountain bike trails. There's also a lovely duck pond complete with boardwalk and viewing platform - just don't forget the stale bread!..more

Logan River Parklands

Down by the river at Beenleigh sits this bright and innovative all-ages playground, featuring elaborate climbing webs, a flying fox, multiple forts, see saws, mini built-in trampolines, plus cute animal-themed musical instruments. The wider parkland also features grassy open spaces, a beach volleyball court and a ping pong table...more

Logan Gardens

This large sprawling park is a green oasis in the heart of Logan Central. The playground is brightly coloured and suitable for all ages and abilities. As well as some pretty epic climbing walls and a cool maze, there's also a Liberty Swing plus wheelchair-, stroller- and little leg-accessible ramps throughout. For something different, kids can gather their friends for a game of disc golf at the on-site course...more

Shailer Pioneer Park

Want to tire the kids out good and proper? This award-winning park in Shailer Park will definitely do that. There's a couple of full-sized (free) tennis courts, plus a multi-purpose basketball court, skate park, grassy field and wetlands walk. And let's not forget the fantastic playground and flying fox...more

Tygum Park 

Ahoy there me hearties! This lagoon-side park in Waterford West will have children speaking fluent 'Pirate' in no time, thanks to the awesome pirate ship fort and crow's nest climbing web. If they ever tire of 'sailing' the high seas, there's also a great walking/cycling loop around the lagoon, a skate park, plus a half-size basketball court...more
