Fern Tree Playground

Shaded by trees Fern Tree Park has a playground and offers easy access to the heritage-listed Pipeline Track. 

It’s a lovely spot for a picnic and is the start and end point for the Fern Tree to Silver Falls Loop walk. It’s also a great place for accessing many other walking and cycling tracks in the area.

The park is one of three key entry points to Wellington Park, the 18,250 hectare nature reserve that forms such a beautiful backdrop to Hobart. 

Fern Tree Park Visitor Node Master Plan

A Fern Tree Park Visitor Node Master Plan has been developed in close consultation with the Wellington Park Management Trust and the community.

Under the approved plan new facilities will be built in the park, including a nature-based playground, toilets, picnic and bus shelters, an upgraded car park, better wayfinding and safer access.

Park-based works are scheduled to start in early 2019. 

Fern Tree Park and Fern Glade Entry Carpark will be closed to the public for up to six months to allow for the construction works to be undertaken safely. Every effort will be made to provide safe public access when possible. The community will be updated on the dates of the closures when this information becomes available.
