You can’t beat a trip to the park for some quality family time and we have some of the best on the Sunshine Coast. Here are a few of our favourites. Why not give one a try this weekend?

Tickle Park, David Low Way, Coolum

The playground offers something for all ages with plenty of climbing, swinging and spinning under the shades. There is a good-sized skate park next to the playground and a grassed area perfect for a picnic. Or, head across the road to enjoy some food from the large range of cafes. There are also toilets, BBQ areas and picnic benches.

Quota Memorial Park, Matthew Street, Nambour

Younger children will enjoy the swinging boat and train while older children enjoy the slide, a rock climb, and a spiral drop. For something a little different, seek out the three-storey building with lots of enjoyable features, including chain and rope climbs and the spiral tunnel slide. There are toilet facilities and lots of grassy areas perfect for a kick-about.

Nelson Park, Katoa Street, Alexandra Headland

A great fenced playground with a huge climbing frame to keep the kids occupied, complete with slides, rope climbs and fireman’s poles. There are also swings, a rope climb and seesaw, and the fenced area is surrounded by a pretty lake with lots of birdlife. The kids can enjoy exploring the community vegetable patch next door and there are BBQ stations, benches and toilets.

Kevin Asmus Park, Nanyima Street, Kawana

A large park with something for everyone. A boat climbing frame is surrounded by an awesome bike track, complete with fuelling station, café and road signs. Once the kids have tired of the playground and swings, and they’ve had their fill of bike riding, take them to the other end of the park to visit the chickens in the large community garden. There is also a basketball court and the park is next to the library, so you could combine the two for a great morning out.

Skippy Park, Old Landsborough Road, Landsborough

The biggest slide the kids ever did see! A wonderful playground with a lovely natural setting, it has a giant slide, double flying fox, swings and sandy areas for the kids to build and dig. Surrounded by a bike track and large playing fields, it’s easy to spend a few hours here. There are toilets, BBQ stations and plenty of seating.
