Best Kids Parks

In Ipswich

One of the best things about Ipswich are its fantastic kids parks. Whether you’re looking to have a quiet picnic, a splash about, a spot of bike riding or to feed some animals, here are 10 of the best Ipswich parks for children to play and explore:

Queens Park

Established in 1864, Queens Park has been a favourite for many years.  It is a park that caters for children of all ages, offers plenty of big shady trees for picnics and is close to the Ipswich Nature Centre and Queens Park Cafe.

Colleges Crossing Recreation Reserve 

This picturesque riverside park has something for everyone, from wide open space to play, a great playground, BBQ and picnic facilities and onsite cafe...more


Ipswich's newest state of the art water park will keep the kids entertained for hours and best of all, there's an excellent open plan family friendly eatery and bar overlooking it...more

Redbank Plains Recreation Reserve

There's something for all ages at this sprawling shady park which features a  3 storey climbing tower, tightrope, spinning sticks, bike paths and skate parks, BBQ facilities and more

Nerima Gardens

A place of tranquillity amazingly located in the centre of Ipswich, Nerima Gardens is not only home to beautifully manicured Japanese gardens, but the fish, ducks and turtles that call the big pond home. This is the perfect place for children to spot the animals and enjoy feeding the resident ducks.

River Heart Parklands

Escape the Summer heat by making a visit to River Heart Parklands.  Kids can enjoy splashing about in the zero depth water park, playing with the sand diggers or the flying fox while mum and dad prepare the barbeque. 

Robelle Domain

A wonderful park for the whole family, Robelle Domain not only has a water park but big open spaces, tree top walks, bike paths and a cafe. This park definitely ticks all the boxes.

Battye Park

Bright and colourful, Battye Park will light up any child eyes.  A fully covered playground with tonnes of different play equipment to choose from, this park will keep kids entertained for ages.

Sutton Park

Learning the road rules starts early at Sutton Park with real life roads, road signs and working traffic lights for kids to practice on. Pack the bikes, scooters and helmets into the car along with a picnic and let the kids loose.

Lobley Park

Embrace pretend play at this aeronautical themed park! Kids can pretend to fly planes, control x-ray machines and radars. The swings are even pretend parachutes – who’s brave enough?
