This is our favourite park to go to, with kids of all ages... My only gripe however is that there is very little shade, i would love to suggest a shade/sail set up over the sandpit and water play area. Even though my kids are wearing sun protection, we are always there longer than anticipated especially as they never want to leave.

There are now toilets in the vicinity of the playground on the Gatehouse Street side near the BBQs. This is an excellent park and playground for all ages. The landscaping with Australian native plants is a lovely feature too.

Oh, and as for the Toilets, follow the path towards the Children's Hospital for the large rotating doors that lead you to proper well maintained Toilets, that are far superior to 'public' toilets you'll find at any other playground!! *8v)
Also of note is the huge open grassy area that surrounds the place, perfect for picnics, frisbees, ball games, kites, etc! Or, if you are inclined, there is McDonalds, Sushi and pasta down the hall of the afore mentioned big doors of the Hospital.
Certainly a Top location for family fun! (only possible negative I could think of is the central location means that it will probably Always be crowded... But this could be equally considered a Positive!!) *8vD

Amazing playground! They have truly done a Magical job of uniting entertainment with aesthetics. Can't believe there aren't daily bone breakages on all the wood and rope courses!! But they are Heaps fun!
For ppl looking to go on a ropes course, but aren't sure about the dizzying heights, this park has an excellent low level High Ropes Course for you to practice on!! The rope & log obstacle bridge thing is also heaps fun for playing chasey whilst breaking bones! (read, Not breaking bones)
Then there is the Water feature sandpit with the magic sand that drinks the water!! Get in quick while it's still working! These things rarely last!!!
On hot days you've got the water fountains to run through and the afore mentioned water features to entertain you!
On top of all this, there are traditional swings, and slides, including an special wobbly slide that Has to be experienced!!
But if ropes, logs, sand, water, bridges, or fountains aren't your thing, then you've got to go up the hill and taken in the spectacular view of the Cityscape and surrounds!! Then roll down!! Of course!
This is what parks are all about! *8vD

Fantastic park, but there are no public toilets within the immediate vicinity. The nearest toilets are at the Royal Children's Hospital. I hope this is fixed sooner rather than later given the park's popularity.
