City Botanic Gardens all abilities playground

""

Brisbane City Council has completed the playground upgrade in the City Botanic Gardens. The playground now provides a variety of play experiences for people of all abilities. The project delivers on the Lord Mayor’s commitment to provide a new all abilities playground in Brisbane’s Central Business District.

This upgrade has been designed in line with the Brisbane Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 and provides quality play facilities where children of all abilities can play together in a well-maintained and safe environment. The new playground provides access for children in wheelchairs and includes a mix of equipment that is stimulating and interesting for all children. It is supported by additional changes to park infrastructure, including wider pathways to allow carers to walk alongside wheelchairs and upgraded toilet facilities with a ceiling hoist for people with disabilities. The heritage values of the City Botanic Gardens have been used as the basis for the playground design.
