Whites Hill Reserve Exploration Playground
A mega space for people of all ages and abilities to play together, Whites Hill Reserve ‘exploration’ playground includes sand and water play, hidden forest and forest trail and raised pathways providing disabled access to play equipment like embankment slides and sway fun glider.
Beautifully landscaped with native trees and bushes, the fully-fenced play area also features a 35m double flying fox, climbing structure with crow’s nest and slide, swings (including support seat, standard and basket), diggers and spinning equipment.
Electric barbecues, shelters and modern amenities (including adult change facilities) make it the perfect park for a picnic; while the bandstand is being restored for large groups to use.
As an added bonus, across the parking lot is a cafe run by not-for-profit Brisbane Metropolitan Touch Association. Open daily, Cafe Metro serves Grinders coffee, cold drinks, breakfast, lunch and snacks.
*Nice to know: If the kids still have energy to burn, take them on a bushwalk through the reserve to Whites Hill summit (there are several circuits to choose from) with an unobstructed outlook of the CBD, framed by bush.
