Educational bike/scooter track
There are an abundance of new children's playgrounds
popping up every day on the Sunshine Coast and families head to these new facilities en masse
. One tends to forget and/or neglect the 'old' parks, which are all special little gems in their own way. The day we visited it was intermittent rain and except for a few dog walkers, we had the park totally to ourselves. If you are looking for somewhere less busy, then head to one of these Learn to Ride Parks
on the Sunshine Coast and enjoy some family time out, away from the crowds.
