Gold Coast’s Best Kids Parks

When you think of a day at the park, you probably think of old, metal climbing equipment, but on the Gold Coast, kids parks have a whole new meaning. Today, there are parks with flying foxes, trampolines and epic slides on every corner. If you are on the Gold Coast and are scrambling for ways to get the kids out of the house, look no further than these five fantastic parks around the Coast.

Pirate Park, Palm Beach Parklands

If you are feeling a little marooned, and ready to walk the plank, why not take the kids to Pirate Park in Palm Beach? With barrels, boats, slides, a grassed area, caves and a treasure chest, the fun is endless for young scallywags.
