Spend some time in the great outdoors

On a sunny day or even a rainy one, it's nice to get out and explore. Particularly if you have a young child who needs to burn off some energy.

The beach? The park? A playground? Frank Hilton Reserve at Maslin Beach combines all of these things and is the perfect place for families.

The seaside suburb of Maslin Beach might have a name for itself for less clad reasons, but unless you purposely go to that beach, you have nothing to fear - and will save on sunscreen.

The high cliffs, the amazing views, the soft white sand. All of these things are synonymous with this area. Frank Hilton Reserve incorporates all this and more.

The park is located along the esplanade and houses a playground with shady sails overhead, a sandpit, barbecue areas and picnic tables, toilets, outdoor exercise equipment for adults (located away from the playground but still in the reserve) and a large grassy area for ball games, chasie, kite flying... the possibilities are endless.

I should also send out a public service announcement to parents of water obsessed children. There are several well maintained and clean drinking fountains; if you have a child like mine the chances are high you won't actually make it to the playground but rather get stuck at every fountain along the way smiling awkwardly at strangers walking past as your child insists he or she MUST press the button a million times!

Well maintained paths make access with prams easy and the shelter over the playground is a welcome relief on a hot day.

Public toilets are clean and within walking distance of the playground for those little one's potty training or mummy or daddy when they've drunk too much coffee.

Take a picnic, meet some friends and enjoy the serenity as your child plays and the waves crash nearby.
