City Botanic Gardens Playground

Cbd

Brisbane’s city's enchanted playground can be found in the city’s oldest park – the City Botanic Gardens.

Appealing to children of all ages and abilities, the playground is near both the Albert and Edward Street entrances, located at the Baldwin Lawn.

Bordered by the Brisbane River on one side (with a fence running between the playground and pathway), custom-designed play equipment – resembling something out of a Tim Burton movie – takes pride and place in the playground.

Part castle, part fort, there’s something for everyone:  slippery dips, climbing nets, interactive panels and musical tubes.

The sand play area is another highlight with diggers and a sand fountain or germination apparatus (circa 1872-1893) – the last remaining piece of scientific apparatus from the botanical science facility.

Alongside the sand pit, you’ll find a quiet play area with some interesting, garden-inspired sculptures.

Suitable for autistic kids with sensitivity to sound, this is a peaceful space where they can get away from playground noise. 

Past the quirky castle, additional play equipment includes swings, spinners, and a carousel with wheelchair access. Here, you’ll also find plenty of picnic tables and platform seating in the shade of the ficus trees.
