Paradise Point is an ideal spot for a family BBQ, birthday party, pram walk and talk, play date and more.
With play equipment scattered the length of the walking path, there is plenty of room for children to run, play, swim and explore. There is also fitness equipment along the path for mums looking for a good pram walk with bubs.
We headed here for a couple of hours on a November afternoon and enjoyed the salty breezes and wide-open spaces. And there’s nothing better than your kids being occupied for two solid hours of early-bedtime inducing play. There is plenty to see – watch your kids on the play equipment, sit on a park bench and imagine how long it would take to clean one of the mansions you can see across the Broadwater, walk out onto the jetty and watch the boats passing by or spot fish in the water.
There is a main adventure playground with lots to explore, and a boat shaped playground close by. Other playgrounds are scattered along the pathway north. The playground equipment is nautical themed and includes boats, seesaws, spinning poles, giant climbing web, swings, merry-go-round, slides and climbing frames. One of the playgrounds is currently undergoing renovation.
Pack a picnic, something to swim in, a ball to kick or a scooter to ride – the whole family will be happy here for hours!
