Stockland’s Pallara is now home to a new District Park and the grand opening was held on Saturday 14th September, 2019. The park features an awesome playground, fitness equipment and a learn-to-ride track that features street markings, speed humps and intersections. It’s the perfect spot for the whole family!
We LOVE this area! Check here to read about Orion Lagoon!
What can we find for families at Pallara District Park?
A commissioned 10-metre high tower in shades of green is the centre-piece at the new Pallara District Park. The multi-levelled playground encourages children to climb to the top followed by a thrilling slide down. Designed in collaboration with Urban Play, Urbis and Stockland the park focuses on creating an intergenerational space that gets everyone moving.
This is a park that’s fit for all ages and varied abilities. You can help your child learn to ride a bike for the first time while the older children play on the challenging climbing nets that lead up to the very top of the tower.
Exercise the day away at Pallara District Park!
Kompan fitness equipment will encourage parents to work out while their kids play with cross training exercises that focus on developing strength and flexibility and street workout exercises which focus on group training and encompass a combination of athletics, parkour and calisthentics.
The exercise equipment is idea for everyone from seniors to fitness freaks. There’s even an easy-to-download digital app to help you figure out how to use the equipment, create a workout regime, challenge friends AND log your nutritional information!
Working together with Urbis Landscape Architects, the playground is inspired by the surrounding native bushland. “Pallara is a beautiful and unique community nestled within existing native bushland. The park and playground are inspired by the deep green colours and earthy tones of the surrounding bush. The custom feature tower is representative of the tall, green, native trees found at Pallara and is the hero of the park, located central to all activity and is visually framed from all approaches. The playground that surrounds the tower also emulates the natural bushland concept and sets the tone for a more nature-based play environment, through the use of earthy tones, forms and materials.” said leading Landscape Architect, Sam Burns.
How to get to Pallara District Park
Head to the corner of Gooderham Road and Brookbent Road, adjacent to the Pallara community. You’ll also find barbecue shelters, bike racks, drinking fountains and toilets. There’s also plenty of space to spread out and have a picnic! It’s an awesome day out that Families Magazine recommends for those near (and those willing to travel to experience a whole new way to play and exercise!).
Great days out for Families!
We just love playing in the different parks around Brisbane. We can’t wait to bump into you at Pallara District Park!
