Looking for things to keep the family occupied over the holidays? And I mean the whole family: Mums and Dads, kids, and the family dog.

Raby Bay Foreshore Park, on Masthead Drive, has been mentioned previously as a great, public recreational area. It has beautiful views overlooking the bay and cooling breezes that make it such a great space for family fun, particularly in these warmer months.

We are talking space. Space to play ball games, space to ride bikes and roller skates, and even space for Dad to throw out a fishing line, and for the little ones to build sand castles.

There is even a designated dog beach where the family canine can run off lead and get his feet wet.Have a look here

I think it important to revisit Raby Bay Parklands, especially if you are the parent, or the friend , of a special needs child. You see, in addition to all the existing playground facilities to put smiles on the faces of our little people, there is now a Liberty Swing.

Not heard of a Liberty Swing before?

Liberty Swings are equipment that allow children with intellectual or physical disabilities, in particular those who mobilise through the use of a wheelchair, the opportunity to swing through the air. It's basically a swing for wheelchairs.
Liberty Swing

The Liberty Swing at Raby Bay is fenced off, and is located next to the regular playground equipment, which is located near the public toilet facilities, including a disabled toilet. There are numerous picnic tables close by, including gas barbecues, as well as grassed areas for picnic rugs and pathways for bike riding.

To gain access to the Liberty Swing you need to contact the Redland City Council on 07 3829 8999 for a key.

This may seem a bit of mucking about, though I am sure you would agree that for a little bit of extra effort there is something to ensure everyone has a happy day.
