Parks

There are lots of fabulous parks in our area - and further afield. Here is a list of our kindy families' favourites ...

In our area:

  • Springwood Park (Cinderella Drive)
  • Underwood Park (Underwood Road) 
Out and about: 
  •  Palm Beach Parklands (945 Gold Coast Highway) : A very cool pirate themed playground that is close to both the surf beach and Currumbin Creek.
  • Carindale Recreation Reserve (Cadogan and Bedivere Streets): A park with moon rocks, a moon buggy and a rocket ship ready to blast off!
  • Ken Fletcher Park, Tennyson (Opposite the Queensland Tennis Centre): Well worth a visit with lots of climbing and play activities
