If you are looking for a spacious park filled with endless opportunities for nature play then Eridani Park is the perfect place for Brisbane Kids to explore and adults to enjoy the tranquillity.
Eridani Park playground
The playground, which is mostly covered by shade sails and is perfect for small Brisbane Kids. There is a fort which contains opportunities for climbing and then of course sliding.
Cute animal springers (koala, cockatoo), sound tubes and play panels can be found in the play area and are a great source of entertainment. The sand base is perfect for building soft sculptures, bridges to run across and drums to play for kids who enjoy sensory play.
Other equipment which is just waiting to be climbed upon and swung on is a nest swing, roundabout and a little climbing structure which is designed to look like a tree stump, in keeping with the natural surroundings.
For more nature based play, if playing in a dry creek bed, hopping along stepping stones, balancing on logs, climbing boulders and pumping water is your thing, you are going to love Eridani Park!
For bigger Brisbane Kids who like a ball game there is a full-size basketball court, a volleyball and takraw (a kicking version of volleyball) court. Or, fly through the air on the flying fox when in need of an adrenaline rush.
The covered picnic tables and large sandstone blocks are great when it is time to sit down for a drink and snack. There are electric BBQs if planning to stay a bit longer.
Imagination Factor at Eridani Park
Eridani Park is wonderland for creativity, nature and sensory play. Brisbane Kids can collect leaves, twigs and rocks to make nature inspired art. Add water from the water pumps and make bark/mud pies or sand sculptures.
Making up a counting game or choreographing a dance while jumping from one balancing logs to another would be fun for kids who enjoy movement.
Accessibility at Eridani Park
Eridani Park has accessible toilets and designated parking. Unfortunately, this is an unfenced play space. There is a ramp and path running from the carpark to the park.
Trees provide natural shade along with shade cloth, but some parts of the park are still unshaded depending on the time of day. There are bench seats and covered picnic tables throughout the space.
