Quiet parklands for active families
Orana Street Park is a small area of parklands that sits adjacent to Point Halloran Conservation Area in Victoria Point on Redlands Coast.

Set amongst koala trees, and fringed by wetlands, Orana St Park is a peaceful area that provides facilities for active families. Many different species of birds visit here, and after the rains, there are frogs to be found in the fringing waterways.

Although small and quiet, Orana Street Park has lots of options for active families

The main highlight of Orana Street Park is a colourful playground. The climbing structure includes a slide, climbing ropes, a tunnel, and a small rock wall for little climbers.

There is also a multi-age swing set and a rope climbing structure for older kids who are looking for more of a challenge. The entire playground is set on a large sandpit, with a shade sail installed above it.

Older kids and teenagers aren't forgotten at Orana Street Parkland with the installation of a basketball half-court, and a large area of well-kept lawn that can be used for other sports such as soccer.

This quiet parkland and playground frequently sit waiting for families to come and enjoy them, making this an ideal destination for anyone wanting a quiet day out. There is a single bench and two sandstone blocks for parents or caregivers to rest on while their children play. However, when planning your day out it is good to keep in mind that there are no public toilets or water fountains here, with the nearest available at Cascade Gardens.

Being small and quiet, Orana Street Park has fewer facilities than some of the neighbouring parks

Guess you live on thr Southside as modt of upur articles are set there.
I would appreciate more on the NORTHSIDE since that is where ee live
Our specific interests are dog parks, arts and crafts and quaint coffee shops.
We are very fortunate in living vlosr to a great off leash park buy I wont divulge its location as its already getting too busy
Crowds of dogs=aggression and poor behaviour(both owners snd dogs,)
Our girl(kelpie) is really well socialised and ball focussed, but other dogs enjoy swiping our ball, causing a considerable loss of time and enjoyment as we wsit for our ball to be returned.
