Places you can park the kids

LANDSBOROUGH’S Pioneer Park is one of the top fenced parks on the Sunshine Coast according to a list of the regions favourite free play areas.

As locals already know Pioneer Park is uber-popular with kids.

A harnessed high-backed seat flying fox, sensory garden, swings, slides and balancing equipment is enough to keep kids occupied long enough for adults to have a decent chat and coffee.

The park is also home to the Love Animals Story Seat by Dr Bronwyn Bancroft, proud Bundjalung Woman and artist.

There is enough room to run, kick a ball around, pushbike or scooter.

It is also wheelchair and pram accessible.

Others in the top five including Nelson Park at Alexandra Headlands. A musical panel, sand and water station, boat, cubby and hammocks keep the little ones fully occupied.

The fenced area is within a four hectare park  where you can stroll around the lake and explore the community garden.

Grahame Stewart Park at Currimundi has activities for all ages including a flying fox, rope activities, basketball court, cricket pitch, bike track and heaps more.

It also has the coast’s first Changing Places public amenities block, which ensures space and equipment for people with high support needs.
