While this park boasts one of the northside's largest fort-like playgrounds (known as Kidspace), an exploration of the expansive 7th Brigade Park reveals it has much more to offer. The Downfall Creek Bikeway runs through the park making this one a very popular track for runners and bike riders. The park also has a rebound wall, half-court basketball court, and a couple of cricket pitches on the ovals for those looking for some organised sport. There are many great spots for a picnic or BBQ throughout the park, and also a dog off-leash area which is popular with the locals.
- There are four playground areas at the 7th Brigade park. Along Murphy Road is the Kidspace playground and another smaller and more conventional playground area. A third is found along Newman Road and the last is a very small collection of playground equipment on the Beor Street side, close to the dog off-leash area.
- The Kidspace playground houses an enormous, solid fort-like structure that provides endless opportunities to climb, hang, slide, crawl, swing, and even hide! It incorporates a Fairy Tower and Rocket Control Tower - certain to fuel every child's imagination. Close by are a number of picnic tables, shelters, BBQs, and a toilet block. A short distance down the path from this playground is a mini road way with stop and give way signs providing a great opportunity for young bike riders to practise their road rules!
- Another older style playground just up from the Kidspace playground area has a slide with ladders to climb, monkey bars and rockers. There are facilities for a picnic or BBQ here also.
- The other main playground, located near the corner of Delaware Street and Newman Rd, is mostly covered by shade sails and has playground equipment including swings (also a liberty swing), a rope climbing pyramid, a slide and rock climbing structure. Other features near this playground are exercise equipment stations, sheltered picnic tables, BBQs and toilets. There is some fencing which provides a barrier to the main roads that run near this playground area.
