First of all there aren’t many fenced playgrounds in Brisbane, but more than you probably think. In our opinion, it is a sad case of councils and developers forgetting about the real people who use these facilities – children. To help you find a play space that is fun and fully fenced, we have created a list of all the fenced playgrounds in Brisbane we know about.

Considerations when using fenced playgrounds in Brisbane
Just because the kids are playing in a fenced playground doesn’t mean you can ignore them and assume they are free from harm. As always, children should be supervised when using playgrounds, and fenced playgrounds are no exception.
- Check there are no holes or broken sections of fencing.
- Make sure the gates are shut at all times,
- Don’t let other children in or out of a fenced playground without their parent’s/carers’ permission.
- Regularly check the whereabouts of your child/ren within the playground.
Who benefits from fenced playgrounds in Brisbane?
- All parents and carers – that’s right- we think every parent and carer of young children would benefit from Fenced Playgrounds in Brisbane simply because of the safety factor.
- Parents and carers of kids with special needs, especially those with ASD and ADHD where verbal direction is ineffective in creating boundaries.
- Parents and carers of multiple children. Let’s face it, how can one parent chase two kids in the opposite direction?
- Parents and carers with kids of similar ages- same reason as above.
- Parents and carers with babies and kids because leaving a baby alone to chase a toddler is a safety risk.
- Pregnant mums with kids, because running while pregnant is a safety issue.
- Parents and carers with mobility challenges may be unable to run after their kids.
