An ideal all-day destination for families, there is so much to do at Symphony Crescent Park it will leave your Brisbane Kids asking to return for another visit. Whether you have toddlers, teenagers or a mixture of ages within your family, everyone will find something to enjoy at this spacious park, whether it is the ninja warrior course, playground, basketball court, green space or bike paths.
Symphony Crescent Park
This suburban park in Brisbane’s north, is a wonderful destination for families to enjoy, no matter what time of year. It features a variety of play equipment suitable for all ages, as well as well as picnic facilities and the all-important toilet facilities.
The playground at Symphony Crescent Park is divided into two separate areas, one being tailored to the younger children and the other a ninja warrior obstacle course, suited for the older kids. Next to these areas is a basketball half-court and lots of green space for ball sports, running games or flying a kite.
Symphony Crescent Playground
The first play area you will see as you enter Symphony Crescent Park is the playground designed for younger children.
In June 2022, the play equipment was replaced and is now home to a sturdy fort displaying cute Australian animals. Aside from the fort, there is quite a few standalone pieces of equipment including spinners, flying fox and a large bank of swings, containing toddler, standard and nest swings, as well as the really cool you-and-me swing, where an adult and toddler can sit facing each other while swinging together.
Primary school children will enjoy scaling the rock wall, trip trapping across the wobbly bridge and climbing ladders, while the toddlers can enjoy the many low-to-ground play panels.
Mini traffic tracks weave around the playground providing a great opportunity for little ones to practice riding or scooting while learning the road rules in the process. Pathways, suited for bikes, scooters, prams and those on foot, extend from the park and into the neighbouring areas for those wanting to explore and get their steps up.
The play equipment is partially covered by shade sails and shade from nearby trees and is surrounded by grassed areas, picnic tables and lots of seating on sandstone blocks. This playground is located closest to the picnic tables, barbeques and toilets, making it easy for supervision and frequent toilet stops.
Symphony Crescent playground is unfenced, with a road nearby, so extra care and supervision should be exercised.
Park Warrior Obstacle Course
Touted as Moreton Bay’s first ninja warrior playground, the Moreton Bay Regional Council was thrilled to open the Park Warrior Obstacle Course at Symphony Crescent Park in June 2022.
The park warrior obstacle course, will see participants leaping, swinging and climbing as they race to complete the course as quick as possible, without falling off or breaking any of the rules. Will you be the Australia’s next Ninja Warrior?
Equipment in the Park Warrior Obstacle Course includes:
- Rail climb/slide
- Jungle bars
- Fields of rings
- Cliff hanger
- The big fling
- Rock hop
- The plank
- Elevated cargo net
- Inside out bars
- Quin steps
If you are not familiar with the equipment or how to use it, then fear not. If you have your phone with you, you can scan the QR code displayed on the sign, where you can view instructions, rules for usage, leader boards and dates for community championships. There is even a timer you can use to time yourself completing the course. If you want to check out the equipment before you go then you can do so by visiting https://parkwarrior.com.au/ and selecting ‘Symphony Crescent Park, Burpengary.’
Adult supervision is necessary and visitors should follow all rules and instructions carefully to avoid injury.
Younger Brisbane Kids can use their imagination to get away from the molten lava or escape giant spiders by climbing their way through all of the awesome play equipment and swinging on the flying fox at Symphony Crescent Park. As always, we love the traffic track and paths for teaching kids about the rules of the road whilst also stretching imaginations so they can become truck drivers, mailmen or racing car drivers.
This unfenced playground has a range of concrete paths which lead from the car-park area to the picnic tables, around the playground and beyond, suitable for wheelchairs and prams. The playground is partially covered by shade sails, and shade from trees, though the park warrior obstacle course is unshaded. Accessible toilet facilities are available and can be accessed by concrete paths.
