    Bob Huth Park, Ashmore

    The dinosaur that sat atop Holly Brooke Carter playground at Bob Huth Park in Ashmore has long been an institution. Watching out over everyone who drove past, kids loved to spot it! The playground was finally updated in mid-2022, and much to everyone's delight, the dinosaur remains to entertain kids for another generation! The new playground is designed to cater for a range of ages, with both a big and small play structure now in place.

Gorgeous views over the broadwater, a calm swimming spot for the kids, shady picnic spots and an EPIC playground that has some of the most amazing pieces that I haven't seen before at any of our parks.
