Guide to Kirra Beach Playground Gold Coast

Heading north from Coolangatta around Marine Parade towards Kirra, you’ll come across one of the world’s most well-known beaches, famous for happy, consistent, rolling waves that surfers adore.

There’s a bike/scooter path that runs along the Kirra foreshore from Coolie to Tugun shops, and about midway along, opposite Douglas Street, you’ll find THE playground we’re talking about.

Play here long enough and you’re bound to see a surfing star meander by too.

It’s the playground that keeps on giving.

Kirra Playground Equipment

No.1: Pyramid Fort

Climbing to the top of the A-line maze mountain is the biggest challenge here.

Can the kids make it all the way to the top?

No.2: Swings

For the more laid-back types like my boy, this swaying swing is just the place to kick back out of reach of your little brother.
