What Is Queens Park Ipswich
Queens Park is one of the oldest parks in Queensland that features that features a large playground for children, lots of grassy areas to run around, plenty of beautiful, shady picnic spots and much more.
Part of what makes Queens Park in Ipswich so special is the nearby Ipswich Nature Centre (A free zoo where you can see animals up close) and Nerima Gardens (a picture perfect Japanese garden).
The playgrounds design at Queens Park has been influenced greatly by Ipswich city’s coal mining history and features a flying fox, a water pump play area, a Liberty Swing (for people in wheelchairs to enjoy a ride) and a fixed sunken train.
The playground also includes all the usual conventional playground equipment such as slides, swings and drinking bubblers of course! Surrounding the playground are some lush, green fields with plenty of trees that provide the perfect, shady spot to set up a picnic blanket.
As you continue up the hill you will find yourself at the Environmental Education Centre and Queens Park Cafe, where you can grab a bite to eat and a cool drink.
Whilst you’re at Queens Park, we recommend you check out the nearby Ipswich Nature Centre – a free zoo within easy walking distance of the park, where you can see loads of cool animals up close. We also recommend checking out the Nerima Gardens which are also located within easy walking distance, where you will see the beautiful picturesque japanese garden in all its glory.
