Ferny Grove Aqua Park project

As part of Brisbane City Council’s commitment to creating new lifestyle and leisure opportunities and delivering vibrant, liveable communities, the Ferny Grove Aqua Park, located at Keperra Picnic Grounds, has been constructed for the community to enjoy.

Now open to the public

The Ferny Grove Aqua Park is the Northside’s first free, fully accessible aquatic playground. Local residents of all ages and abilities are now able to enjoy the aqua park’s new features including tipping buckets, water cannons, stream jets and bubblers, a water table and level splash pad.

The new $1.5million facility complements additional and ongoing aquatic centre upgrades across the city including Langlands Pool which will open mid next year and Musgrave Park which is scheduled to start in 2019.
