South bank parkland is always a good idea, the amenities are amazing for the children : pool, water games, playground, giant slides, restaurants, etc. Careful it is very busy during school breaks, make sure you are coming early!
Also make sure to go on a ride aboard the City hooper ferry and it’s free!
Roma street parklands is another alternative, no pool, but a stunning public garden to with your children. Another plus is the Parkland Explorer train that provides an alternative to guided walks.
The Parkland Explorer usually operates:

The Enoggera reservoir is Brisbane’s most exclusive swimming spot, dating from 1866, the Gap’s bush water playground is one of Walkabout Creek’s leading attractions. You can enjoy a walk with your little ones on the Araucaria Track (a 5km circuit). It is a splendid easy grade shaded path, suited to all ages, which follows the water’s edge and has a few strategically placed benches for a rest with a view.
You can also rent a Kayak for few hours if you feel like exercise your arms!
