Ronnie Long Park is located on the beachside of Tallebudgera Surf Club, overlooking the northern end of Palm Beach.
One of our favourite things about this playground is the small cafe underneath the surf club which has a selection of drinks and snacks suitable for kids, as well as a good coffee. There is nothing like making one stop for coffee and a play!
It is in a gorgeous beachside location, close to the walking path that takes you around to Talle Creek, and even to Burleigh Heads over the headland. Kids can ride their scooters along the walking path (but watch the steep path to the carpark).
It also has lots of parking, toilets close-by, shade sails and lots to explore for kids.
The playground is huge and divided into two areas.
The first area is located directly in front of the surf club and includes a fantastic plane for kids to ‘fly’ and turn the wheels and dials. There are also standard swings, and a little slide, rock-climbing walls, lookout and whale spring rocker. This area has a sand ground cover and it is intended for younger kids.
The second area is a huge three-storey structure that includes multiple slides, a ‘beach maze’, fireman poles, spinning web, and web swing. This area has a soft rubber ground cover.
Both playgrounds are semi-enclosed, but are close to the car-park, so careful supervision is a must.
Bring a blanket and set up under one of the trees around the park – there are benches but they tend to fill up early, and are not under shade.
