Streets Beach re-opening – South Bank Parklands

A refurbished and rejuvenated Streets Beach will reopen to the public on Saturday 27 June, just in time for the school holidays and for littlies who dare to embrace the chillier temperatures!

From this weekend onwards, young ones can learn a thing or two about the history and landmarks of the Parkland through a hanging Arbour installation. Interactive games of hopscotch and I Spy will also dot the 1km long Arbour path, so children can hop- step and jump their way throughout.
