A climber’s paradise, this Central Springs Park at Caboolture has numerous opportunities for your Brisbane Kid to test their capabilities and have some fun!
Dawn Andrews Park playground
The first thing the kids will spot at Dawn Andrews Park is the adventure towers, connected by a wobbly bridge with a large tunnel slide. It’s great for climbers challenging them to negotiate the levels of the towers, running back and forth along the wobbly bridge and scaling the cargo nets. Climbers will also delight at the parkour-style climbing cubes, tricky, but not too tricky!
For those that love that flying feeling, there are twin flying foxes for the kids to race their mates. Alongside the flying foxes is the swing set with a regular, toddler and basket swing. The large grassy area beside the playground is a fantastic spot to play a game of tag, throw a frisbee, fly a kite or start a game of soccer. It also has a gentle slope, and what kid doesn’t like simply rolling down a hill.
At the playground, there is also a smaller balancing rocker, a game of connect four, a weather station play board and a basketball half-court. Central Springs is a master-planned community, so there are concrete paths winding around a small wetland area creating a little circuit and scooters and bikes are welcome here. There is also a healthy population of water birds to spot.
Certainly aimed at those who love to climb, kids can pretend to be rock climbers scaling a sheer cliff face. Perhaps they want to be ninjas today, test out their strength and capabilities on the parkour-style cubes. Jungle fever may have set in, and they’re swinging on a vine through the jungle like Tarzan, or they simply want to play kings and queens in their tower.
Dawn Andrew Park playground is great for ages three and up. There isn’t a lot for toddlers to play on aside from the swings, the weather station board or play in the grassed area. With assistance, they could negotiate the towers and flying foxes. The playground isn’t ideal for those with special needs. Owing to the layout and size of the playground, it is only partially shaded with woodchip soft fall and is unfenced.
There are concrete paths connecting each of the spaces in the park, however, there is limited on-street parking. Good for a small party, there is a shelter with two tables and chairs with an electric BBQ and water bubbler. Although there are no bathroom facilities.
