7th Brigade Park is a popular location for casual family bike ride with the Downfall Creek Bikeway running through the park, as well as the 500-metre road skill track that is designed to help children learn road rules, complete with road signs, markings, and speed bumps.

Yet, there is so much more to explore in the park, particularly the playgrounds located on Beor Street, Delaware Street-Newman Road, Navarre Street, and Murphy Road.

A giant timber fort playground, the Kidspace, is a play space located along Murphy Road. It boasts impressive covered structures that encourage kids to swing, climb, slide, crawl, and play hide-and-seek.

The playground features a fairy tower,  rocket control tower, ramps, balance beams, and slides. There are seating areas, some covered and some located underneath the trees, as well as barbeque facilities. For adults and older kids, there is a basketball half-court, cricket pitch, and a tennis court with rebound wall. The older playground with rockers, slides, and swing is located near the track as well.

Located just at the corner of Newman Road and Delaware Street is another shaded playground with a number of structures and equipment for kids to enjoy such as rock-climbing, stepping stones, monkey bars, rockers, swing, as well as a Liberty swing.

For the adults, there is also an area for exercising, complete with fitness equipment, as  well as barbecue facilities and sheltered picnic tables. If the kids still have energy to burn and still wanting to explore the rest of the park, then you may head to another playground located on Beor Street, close to the dog off-leash area.

This expansive park offers lots of fun activities for everyone, especially for the children and teens, that an entire day may not be enough to enjoy them all. However, you and your kids can always come back for another round of family day at the 7th Brigade Park.
