Brisbane expecting 17 New Playgrounds

No matter where you live in Brisbane, you can’t be far from a playground or park upgrade, with 29 park projects being progressed by Brisbane City Council in 2021. Brisbane is expecting 17 New Playgrounds in 2021.

A playground provides the environment needed for children to engage in playground structures that develop key cognitive, social and physical skills. 

Works are now underway to deliver 17 new playgrounds, 12 upgraded dog parks and improvements to two lookouts and four walking tracks, with all expected to open for the whole family to enjoy by the middle of the year.

From complete makeovers, new shade sails and an ocean-themed playground in Sandgate, there’s plenty for the kids to get excited about in the lead up to the school holidays.

Works are also well underway to convert the concrete scar in Hanlon Park, Stones Corner, into a natural waterway and destination park, with young families already flocking to the recently opened nature-themed playground and new native trees attracting wildlife back to their natural habitat.
