Calamvale District Park Named One of Brisbane’s Most Popular Parks

Did you know that Calamvale District Park is the fifth most popular park in Brisbane? With over 200 bookings in the previous year, the beautiful green space has hosted heaps of activities for communities and families.

The well-planned park opened in 2012 and has been home to annual celebrations like Halloweens and Christmas in the Park, as well as the regular Calamvale Pakruns. 

“This has been a project I embarked on with local students from Calamvale Community College, Algester State School and St Stephens School who helped me through our local workshops to design a park in a bushland setting to cater for all ages in our community,” Cr Angela Owens said. 

“Soon, [we will] welcome a new addition of a Memorial to honour those who have served and continue to serve our Nation,” Ms Owen added.

Among the park’s unique features is the adventure playground, which has the most impressive play equipment for adventurous children called the Sky Walk, a steel-and-rope structure spanning 7.5 metre high and a flying fox of about 50 meters long.

Smaller kids, however, also have a fantastic interactive play area where they can play music or get some thrills at the swing.

Modern barbecue facilities and pavilions for picnics make this site a favourite spot for celebrating children’s birthdays or regular weekend get-togethers. Not far from the playground is the Calamvale District Park offleash dog park with plenty of benches and shade.

“Families from right across Brisbane go to Calamvale District Park because of the incredible playground,” Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said.

“The bush setting, shady trees and great range of other facilities also make it a great spot for an event, like a birthday party.”
