Civosity Park is a unique and enchanting kids space on the edge of Ithaca Creek in Bardon, that is the creation of Brisbane sculptor David Enhwicht.
As you emerge from the Ithaca Creek bikeway and walking path underneath Jubilee Terrace this little magic land appears like a mirage. Or, from the corner of Fletcher Parade pass the ionic column and animal sculpture scene and painted fridge street library that front the sculptor's house and you'll happen across it too.
This colourful and whimsical little land, which is open to the public, features a purple cottage play 'cafe', outdoor sundeck chairs and loungers, kids chairs and play equipment and a hanging basket chair.
A circuitous sculpture path with boardwalk passes through the park, with bridges over a running stream and a waterfall feature, and dotted with the artist's own sculptures.
There's even a smattering of children's toys, including a mini tractor and rocking horse for kids to play on. But not just for kids, adults will enjoy sitting on the furniture under the tree and taking in the beauty of this artistic little space.
Need to know - The creator David Engwicht, turned 70 in 2020 and he has been working on a major bronze sculpture that kids can interact with. The casting of the sculpture will cost seven thousand dollars and his daughter is hoping to raise the money as a birthday present for him in return for what he has created in his own time for the community.
