Riverheart Parklands

About Riverheart Parklands

The 3 February 2007 marked the grand opening of Ipswich’s River Heart Parklands, a $4.5m project funded by both the Queensland Government and Ipswich City Council that brings to life 1.5h of otherwise untouched land along the Bremer River between Roseberry Parade and Woodend adjacent to Ipswich Central. Widely recognized for its leisure facilities – open daily from sunrise until 10:00 pm with ample car parking available nearby – this picturesque riverside park even welcomes dogs on leashes!

The stunning River Heart Parklands on the banks of Ipswich’s Bremer River provide wheelchair and pram-friendly boardwalks stretching over one kilometre, connecting two popular bridge crossings – from the old rail bridge to Bradfield Pedestrian Bridge (which leads directly to shopping haven, Riverlink), plus a special aquativity section called bob Gamble Park.


What to do at Riverheart Parklands

Explore the River Heart Parklands in Ipswich and discover a picturesque mini rainforest with river breezes, cascading waterfall and a sculptured pond. Learn about interesting historical facts – for example. It was originally chosen to be Queensland’s State Capital due to an old wharf owned by the Australasian Steam Navigation Company; however, Brisbane became the capital instead as the river wasn’t deep or wide enough for large ships. There are plenty of car parks and viewing platforms, so visitors can take full advantage of this beautiful nature spot.

Experience a world of endless possibilities at River Heart Parklands, Ipswich’s tranquil sanctuary along the Bremer river. Enjoy countless activities such as splashing around in the zero-depth playground and scaling up the spider web-style climbing frame; take flight with their 25-metre flying fox or explore ‘Discovery Forest’ – an area large enough to fit a football field! Stroll through historied paths under pram-friendly boardwalks and marvel over creatures projected onto moonlit waters for enchanting evening escapades.
