With several different play areas, Seventh Brigade Park in Chermside is perfect for Brisbane Kids who love to run and climb.
7th Brigade Park
The playground fronting Newman Road in Chermside is an alternative to the Kidspace Playground on the other side of 7th Brigade Park and is well worth a visit – especially if you have older Brisbane Kids with energy to burn.
There are several different climbing structures, including a net, a rock-climbing wall, a geometric climber, and ladders up to a slide. In addition, there is a spinner, monkey bars, stepping-stones and bouncy rockers. As well as a swing set featuring two standard swings and two baby swings, plus a stand-alone bird’s nest swing and a Liberty Swing. Teenagers and adults will also appreciate the fitness equipment near the playground.
The climbing structures could become anything your adventurous Brisbane Kids wish – mountains, tall towers, skyscrapers, cranes, or castles. The stepping stones also lend themselves to games of leaping across rivers, avoiding snapping crocodiles, while younger children can have fun galloping away on the bouncy horses.
Accessibility at 7th Brigade Park
7th Brigade Park caters for wheelchair users, with a fenced and shaded Liberty Swing, accessible toilets and wide paths leading to the picnic tables.
Unfortunately, the main playground is not easily accessible as there is no path and it has a mostly bark base. The park is partially fenced along Newman Road and Delaware Street. It is mostly shaded, by shade sails and trees, although some equipment is unshaded.
