Ascot Park is a colourful playground and heritage parkland featuring a 1930s bandstand rotunda with adjacent BBQ facilities and a heritage palm avenue.
Wide grassy areas fill the shady landscaped space which was previously known as Brisbane Racing Club member's carpark.
The playground includes a colorful cubby house structure with slides, swings, maze and spider-web climbing frame, as well as an onsite stream and water pump - a popular spot for little ones to experiment with directing the flow of water under the bridge.
An elegant bandstand rotunda, inspired by the original structure which once adorned Ascot Park, provides the ideal spot for small outdoor concerts and events with adjacent barbecue and toilet facilities located beneath the Moreton Bay figs.
Need to know - Street parking is available and Ascot Train Station is located directly opposite the park.
