East Coast Park is likely one of the biggest draws for families on weekends, especially after the refurbishment of its Marine Cove enclave. A 3,500 sq metre playground, family-friendly restaurants and a beachfront setting make it perfect for a day out. The centrepiece of the playground is the eight metre tall tower modelled after a lighthouse – it features three levels, a rope funnel for active kiddos to scale up, multiple slides and a link bridge. Wheelchair-friendly play areas are also available, along with numerous other swings and mini obstacles courses.
These public playgrounds provide endless hours of fun and exercise. From splash buckets and natural streams to giant rope courses and eight-metre-tall climbing towers, the tykes will be occupied for an entire afternoon. Some of these play areas even encourage the adults to join in, so you can unleash your inner kid and feel like you're seven all over again.
