The new attraction, which will be located at the central section of Bradbury Park, will include a large playscape to provide challenging play for older children, new picnic shelters and seating, electric barbecues, amenity block, connecting pathways, and a new car park.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said parents can have a peace of mind with the new playgrounds coming to Brisbane, including the new theme park at Bradbury Park as they are safer, sturdier and designed with features like puzzles and nature play to help kids develop skills away from the iPad or computer screen.

“The days of run of the mill parks and playgrounds are gone, as we embark on world-class improvements in parks right across the city, including new scooter tracks, ninja warrior courses and nature play areas,” said Cr Schrinner.

Prior to these upgrades, the latest improvements to Bradbury Park included the construction of a basketball half-court adjacent to the scooter track, which was completed in July 2021.

The park also features a nature playspace, called “Magical Forest” which was constructed within an existing grove of mature trees and offers an infinite source of adventure especially designed for children ages 2 to 8.

Magical Forest received both the 2021 QLD AILA Landscape Architecture Award for Small Projects and the 2021 National AILA Award of Excellence for Play Spaces.

The award-winning space, which is a collaboration between Naturform landscape contractors and Form Landscape Architects, was composed of simple elements that do not overpower the natural qualities of the site.
