Some great parks in Toowoomba are:

Webb Park, Dudley St, East Toowoomba has a slide all the way down a hill, flying fox, and climbing equipment.

Queens Park, 43 Lindsay St, Toowoomba has various playgrounds throughout, including one for the littlies, one for the bigger kids and a solar-powered activities one.

Picnic Point, 164 Tourist Rd, Toowoomba has a few separate playgrounds as well, such as the Crooked House playground, a flying fox and bicycles.
