Located on the Bald Hills flats along the banks of South Pine River, Pine Rivers Park is one of the most popular public recreation spaces in the Strathpine region. With wide open grassed areas, shaded picnic areas and an array of wild water birds, Pine Rivers Park is a destination everyone can enjoy.
There’s a flying fox and climbing frame nestled amongst the mature Norfolk Pine trees, and a garden maze surrounded by a pedal train track means there’s plenty to keep big kids amused. Little kids will be safe in the fully fenced and tree-shaded playground with slide and swings, and a covered table and benches mean mum can sit and chat and still keep an eye on the happenings. A recent addition to the park is an exclusive toddler playground, complete with toddler-height activities, sandpit and swings set behind a fence and softfall.
There are no shops within walking distance of the park, so come prepared with snacks; there are water bubblers if drink bottles are empty. A small portion of the softfall outside the playground is currently fenced off to dry out after recent wet weather. A busy playground most weekends, and after school, Pine Rivers Park is a fun afternoon adventure when the kids have energy to burn.
