  • Beautiful park. Perfect for kids and families. The playgrounds are fantastic and the water section for kids is great. There is lot of grass and a place to get coffees. I enjoy bringing my family here. Lots of playgrounds for all ages and bathrooms. It is also a nice place to walk or ride a bike or play ball.
  • This is one of the coolest parks in Brisbane. Perfect for cooling off the family on a hot day. The kids absolutely love it because there’s so many things for them to do. It’s great for picnics or barbecues or parties. There are also huge mango trees lining the road across from the community garden, and a huge mound of dredged seashells from back when the place was a cement factory. Very interesting place.
  • This park has it all. Awesome play areas for kids. Water features. Fantastic shade and trees. Bike paths. Big green area for family cricket, soccer etc. Bbq areas. It is on the river. Handicapped swing. Amongst the best parks for families in Brisbane.
  • Beautiful park. Good place. Suitable for both wet and dry game for young kids. Have BBQ pit here too. Good place for family gathering too.
  • A great location and family friendly. Great place to go with the family after spending time in the park. It's not a big place but for a community market, the size is just great. Music playing makes the place even better
