Lobley Park, Ipswich
Where is it: Churchill – not too far from Amberley
What's it all about: An aviation themed playground that ticks all the boxes in what a fun park needs!
Tell me more: The award-winning Lobley Park is a super fun park with an airplane theme – paying a bit of a tribute to the Ipswich’s connection with the air force! The little guys loved the airplane to play in, an air traffic control tower and the parachute swings! Heaps of space for running about and all the usual playground fare – swings, slides and story time area, as well as barbeques and tables for your picnic or party! And a great network of paths makes it very accessible for wheeled devices! It’s a quality park and its awesome aeronautical theme really defines it!
Amenities: Full public facilities including barbeques! 👍👍👍
Parking: Free parking! 👍👍👍
Access: Great access throughout the park! 👍👍👍
Best for: Your little budding pilots! 👍👍👍
Summary: A really fun themed park that will set your child’s imagination soaring! 👍👍👍
Hints: It would be great to visit after a morning out at Amberley Air Force Base’s open day!
Frew Park, Milton
Where is it: Milton, adjacent to Milton Road
What's it all about: A super fun park at the spiritual home of tennis in the inner west of Brisbane!
Tell me more: Brisbane is home to some exceptional public parks which are great for families, and Frew Park in Milton is one of the better ones! Built on the site of the former Queensland Tennis Centre, this park has a sealed carpark (expect it to be busy on the weekends), a large lawn area, tennis courts, café, bbq areas and an amazing playground! It also has a designated booking site which might be an idea for your birthday party or function. But the main attraction (for us at least) is the fantastic playground! Lots of concrete, steel, ramps, climbing, slides and nets - it's not your ordinary playground and kids absolutely love it!
Amenities: Full public facilities, and cafes available at times! 👍👍👍👍
Parking: Limited free parking! 👍👍
Access: Very good access around the facility! 👍👍👍👍
Best for: Everyone! 👍👍👍👍
Summary: A different but exceptionally fun playground that is a must see for Brisbane’s park users! 👍👍👍👍
Hints: Be prepared to stay for a while – you will have trouble dragging the kids away from this!
