Riverbend Park

This new all-abilities park has transformed a former industrial precinct into a major new recreational area for Launceston, funded by the City of Launceston and the State and Federal Governments.

Riverbend Park is divided into four zones: The River Play area, Gorge Play area, Wild Core area, and Urban Plaza.

Each zone contains a range of play equipment and experiences, including swings, diggers, sand pits, a wheelchair carousel, a water play area, musical instruments, outdoor table tennis, see-saws and a full size sports court.

The park's largest attractions are undoubtedly the Sky Walk and the 'confluence net', two of the largest pieces of play equipment in Australia.

It also boasts barbecue facilities, public toilets, a giant mural, and a fenced toddler play area.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Great place to spend time with family and friends
  • Close to QVMAG and the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania
  • Plenty of (free) parking
  • Access to the Seaport
