What Is It?
If you’re looking for things to do in Brisbane with kids, look no further. Located within the 7th Brigade Park at Chermside, you will find Kidspace Playground – a massive timber fort playground that was designed by local children and built by the community. The giant fort is completely undercover and in our opinion, it is one of the best playgrounds in Brisbane.
As you explore further into the fort you will find heaps of fun things to do including a rocket control tower and a fairy tower, as well as ramps, slides, balance beams and more. The playground is set on a base of bark, sand and in some areas rubber, making it very safe for the little ones.
Within the immediate area surrounding the Kidspace playground you will find plenty of seating areas, as well as free electric barbecue facilities and a disabled toilet. There are some undercover areas and plenty of seats and tables underneath shady trees.
On the other side of the playground you’ll discover a basketball half-court, a rebound wall, and a cricket pitch, catering perfectly to older Brisbane kids.
One of our favorite features of the park would have to be the bike track, located further to the side of the park. The bike track features weaving concrete tracks that are dotted with give way and stop signs, providing a perfect opportunity for children to learn about road rules whilst having fun!
In addition to the Kidspace playground, 7th Brigade Park has a lot more to offer in the way of vast space (perfect for kicking around a ball or flying a kite), as well as concrete pathways that provide a great spot for riding skateboards, roller blades and scooters.
The park is dog friendly, and is located a short walk from the Chermside Shopping centre.

What Should I Bring?
We recommend bringing along some comfortable closed in shoes, sunscreen and a hat, as well as your camera. It’s also not a bad idea to pack a picnic lunch or something to cook up on one of the barbeques! Finally, we recommend bringing along your bikes, scooters or roller blades as there are plenty of places to ride on them, as well as a ball to use at the basketball court!
