Riverside Green, South Bank

After exploring the Christmas markets, parades, and displays, take a break from the hustle and bustle of the CBD to discover the Riverside Green playground. A staple of South Bank since 2015, this playground remains ever popular thanks to the innovative and inclusive play equipment. More daring children can climb to the top of the skywalk to explore the cabins while an inclusive toddler pirate ship offers fun for all ages and abilities. The swings, embankment play, mouse house, and spinners offer plenty to explore.
