Broadwater Parklands Play Attraction

Construction is due to begin later this year on a new seven-hectare play attraction at Broadwater Parklands. Located near the North Street entrance, the Broadwater Parklands Play Attraction will provide a major play facility in the northern precinct of the Parklands. It will also extend the parkland’s capacity as one of the city’s most patronised parks.

Vision

Our vision is to create a special place for people of different abilities and multiple generations to play, interact and socialise together.

The Play Attraction will provide a variety of physically challenging and imaginary play experiences whilst also providing informal gathering spaces for all visitors to enjoy the Broadwater. Visitors will also learn about the Broadwater’s fascinating bird and sea life as they interact with feature elements such as oversized mud crabs, sculptural birds, murals and discovery trails.
