We drive past here all the time, and keep saying ‘yeah, we should stop and have a picnic...’ but then get caught up in the daily grind and another week has gone...
It’s so pretty here, and quiet. Kids can play fairly safely especially if you’re in towards the middle. There are toilets (fairly clean). Some seating but mostly it’s a walking or picnic spot, a place to breathe.
It’s a pity that parking is awkward if you’re not familiar with the area. Also the big car race is held here in the second half of the year, annually, so access is blocked.
But if you’re in the area, check it out.

Macintosh Island Park is a wonderful large park just minutes walk from the beach. It is fully geared up for families and friends to get together and have a bbq, celebrate a birthday or just get together for no particular reason.

You don't have to go as a group as there are plenty of places to sit on your own or as a couple and take in the atmosphere.

Plenty of playground equipment to keep the children occupied and hopefully wear them out.

Not a busy park so really lovely for a stroll.
