The Council has some great stuff happening in Bracken Ridge
Whether you’re indoorsy or outdoorsy, there are things to do in Bracken Ridge that the Council can be very proud of. There’s certainly no reason to be bored. Here are some ideas for you to enjoy after you free up your weekend by booking GreenSocks for your Bracken Ridge mowing services:
Adopt a new furry friend
The Warra Animal Shelter on Telegraph Road, Bracken Ridge is a long-established facility where people can go along and adopt a homeless dog or cat. Run by the Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) which never turns away an abandoned or surrendered animal, no matter what its age, breed or health condition.
Stick your nose in a book
Bracken Ridge Library is open Tuesday to Saturday every week and offers a meeting room with a capacity of 40 that is also accessible after hours. There’s an ever-changing schedule of fun and free activities for all ages.
Get active outside
Construction is underway of Brisbane City Council’s exciting new aquatic centre on Telegraph Road. Part of the development will include a fun street-style skate/BMX plaza facility. People of all ages and experience level will be welcome at both the aquatic centre and skate park and it will definitely add a fresh new vibe to the area’s activity choices.
Park yourself in one of the many grassy outdoor areas
With more than 25 different parks of various different sizes to choose from, Bracken Ridge has more than enough reasons to spend some lovely time outside. Electric barbecues can be found at Fred Francis Park, Barrett Street Park and McPherson Park and many of the parks feature playgrounds, picnic areas, public toilets and water bubblers.
At McPherson Park, train lovers will adore the Model Train Club which meets on the fourth Sunday of each month and is run by the Bracken Ridge Central Lions Club. So book your Bracken Ridge mowing services, then grab your model train and head down to the park!
Featured park – Wendy Turnbull Park
You can always depend on Wendy Turnbull Park for a nice expanse of well maintained green lawn. Council takes good care of it, along with the fun playground and many trees dotted around the Enbrook Street spot. The shady trees provide a thoroughly inviting place to sit and chat with friends over lunch, to take the kids for an afternoon kick of a ball before dinner or to hold a weekend birthday party.
Or stretch your mind back to your childhood memories of flying a kite. You can pick them up pretty cheaply at toy stores or you can easily make them yourself which will give you another hour or two up your sleeve of keeping the kids’ boredom at bay.
You can even set up a makeshift putting green and have a family golf day. The tidy lawn of Wendy Turnbull Park is the perfect spot for it and you can use the trees, slippery slide and swings as obstacles.
Whatever you do, don’t miss out on the beautiful natural assets and Council infrastructure that’s there to be enjoyed in Bracken Ridge.
Where is Bracken Ridge?
Bracken Ridge was established in the 1960s and is situated 19km from the CBD. It is a bit of a gateway to the seaside suburbs of Sandgate and Shorncliffe or, a bit further northward, Redcliffe and its neighbours.
If you live or own property in Bracken Ridge, GreenSocks can organise Brisbane lawn maintenance for you, no trouble at all. In fact, we can even help your friends who live in the surrounding suburbs of Bald Hills, Brighton, Sandgate, Carseldine, Deagon, Bray Park, Fitzgibbon and Taigum and even those farther out as well.
Quick Wikipedia fact: Bracken Ridge was originally named ‘Rose Hill’. The first European land owner of the area, Louis Hope, grew sugar cane and other crops, and a dairy industry was established later on.
