Maisie Dixon Park Queensland

Take a stroll and enjoy the weather outdoors with friends, loved ones, and pets at Maisie Dixon Park – a 19.49-hectare public park in Eight Mile Plains, Queensland that’s carefully maintained by Brisbane City Council and the local community members. It’s a great park where everyone can run around and play. Children will surely love the park’s playground since it has various playground equipment like climbers, monkey bars, swings and bubblers. While the kids do their thing, the parents or guardians can stay on picnic tables and benches situated around the area and mingle with other adults while keeping an eye on their kids. Dogs will definitely love playing catch on the park’s wide grass field, some were even seen swimming around the clean waterways all the way through Bulimba Creek. Speaking of animals, keep your eyes open when exploring the park – you might be lucky enough to see wildlife animals like koalas clinging to trees and squirrels running around since there are lots of pine trees around the park. There are also paved paths available for bikers, skaters, and joggers. The park is abundant with different flowers, plants and trees, so there are plenty of shades in case the weather’s too hot. There’s also a designated drone flying area in the park so you’ll see lots of people around who love to capture aerial views.

The park is located at the intersection of High Street and George Street, Eight Mile Plains. The park is well-connected to public transport. For example, if you’re coming from North of Queensland, you can take a bus from Roma Street Station to Cultural Centre station and alight at MacGregor Street at Garden City Depot. Walk east on MacGregor St., turn right onto Logan Road/State Route 95, go left on Holmead road and at the roundabout, take the first exit onto Nardie street then you’ll see the park on your left. Not far from Maisie Dixon Park, there are also other parks you can visit such as Wishart Community Park and Underwood Park Priestdale that’s just a few miles away from Daisy Hill Conservation Park. If you’re looking for something more exciting than biking or running, you can try active sports activities at Bounce Tingalpa. Eagles Sports Complex isn’t that far away too, so if it so happens that your favourite team has a game that day, you can reach the venue within an hour from Maisie Dixon Park. If that’s not up to par, you can just chill out at the stores and cafes surrounding the park. For families with kids that haven’t had enough from just playing in the park, you can bring them to Karawatha Forest Discovery Centre after since it’s just about 15 minutes away.
