A nice walk along the esplanade and a great spot for light refreshments. Plenty of people to watch passing by and children to amuse you with their antics

Lots of things to keep the little one occupied here on a good weather day we walked it from coral towers about one Klm but I did notice later driving past later that the car park can get busy

We enjoyed our time here. A great way to burn some energy. Between the play equipment and the water parks there is plenty to do! Right on the esplanade with a cafe nearby. Plenty of seating options. And free!

Great facilities, quite busy during weekends and school holidays. Cafe located here offers easily accessible menu. They have an IG wall art, be great to have more around the park to for the older kids to take photos while the younger enjoy the park.
