Set in a prime location on the Redcliffe Peninsula, Spinnaker Park is a beautiful lakefront playground appealing to families looking to enjoy a day in the sun. Made in conjunction with Stockland Newport and the Touched by Olivia Foundation, Spinnaker Park is an all-abilities playground in north Brisbane that ensures children of all abilities can play together, including those with physical disabilities and spectrum disorders such as autism.
The centrepiece for Stockland Newport’s new community, Spinnaker Park is positioned to take full advantage of the seaside town’s idyllic location, even featuring a three-storey high sail tower in the playground overlooking Moreton Bay.
Designed with a nautical theme in mind, the all-abilities playground features an interactive water feature that will be illuminated at night to create a spectacular display. The play environment caters to all ages, with equipment offering a wide variety of play activities that will encourage children’s imagination to run wild with a play ship, a coconut rope swing, climbing nets, slides and sand and water play activities that will challenge children’s physical, social and cognitive development.
The colossal 11-metre sail tower is filled with multi-level climbing activities and two fast slides, the elevated ramp entry hugging the side offers beautiful views of Newport Lake. For the little pirates, the toddler sail tower still offers climbing activities and a slide and a play ship where they can be captains of their own adventure.
Spanning almost 9,000 square metres, there’s plenty of room for families to play and have fun. Also offering public access to Newport’s Lake, there is a launch area for non-motorised watercraft such as kayaks and paddleboards.
The all-abilities playground in north Brisbane features 18 pieces of equipment, the feature piece being a landmark three-storey high sail tower inspired by a ship’s sails piercing the horizon. This feature tower incorporates a wheelchair-accessible viewing platform with spectacular views over the lake and Moreton Bay.
Picnic shelters and BBQ’s are optimally located for parents to easily keep an eye on children playing or towards the lake and canal for beautiful picnic views. There are also water fountains and public art pieces for adults to enjoy that will be illuminated of a night-time.
The playground is a showcase of accessibility, ensuring all children, no matter age or physical disability, can play together and enjoy being outdoors.
Accessible public toilets are also available just outside the parks fenced playground area, across from a grassy green expanse, perfect for those who would like to kick or throw a ball around.
