INSIDE: Everything you need to know about Laguna Park Playground.
If you are visiting the Gold Coast with kids, you need to know about Laguna Park playground.
Laguna Park fenced playground is down the southern end of the coast, in the suburb of Palm Beach but not beach side.
It’s hidden among the houses.
Which makes it one of the best kept secrets of the Gold Coast things to do for kids.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: Laguna Park Palm Beach

This is one of the two best parks in Palm Beach.
First of all because it’s fully fenced, and keeps kids away from the lake next door.
The other is Palm Beach Pirate Park.
It’s one of the best Gold Coast playgrounds too, and you can hit both in one day.
Best Things to do at Laguna Playground Gold Coast
Palm Beach Laguna Park playground is HUGE.
It’s divided up into four sections:
- Giant Fort playground
- Pirate playground
- Monorail track ride
- General playground inside the monorail pedal ride track (including Laguna Park Liberty Swing)
Check out each section below.
No.1: Palm Beach Laguna Playground Fort
The Laguna Park fort is a HUGE three storey climbing playground.
- a twisty slide
- dual slides for racing
- tunnels, and
- climbing stairs to get in, up and around.
The fort straddles the monorail track.
There’s viewing platforms for kids to watch their friends from up high.
It’s also OCEAN themed!
Check out the Surfboard climbing wall on one side.
Next to the fort, you’ll see a pyramid climbing structure too.
No.2: Pirate Boat playground
If you stand with the fort behind you, you’ll spot this to your right.
Walk the rope bridge and you’ll spy a pirate boat.
And a skull and cross bones flag!
Kids can climb the chain link ladder to get to the upper level lookout.
Or hide out behind the cannons to stop unwanted guests!
No.3: Pedal Power Monorail ride
The highlight for most kids (and parents) at this local GC playground is the monorail ride.
Newly updated, these monorail cars have been resigned to stop stray fingers from getting stuck underneath.
There’s two cars, and each car seats two.
Kids may need a push to get going, and they love nothing more than mum or dad helping them out to beat the other team.
No.4: More Laguna Park Playground Equipment
Scattered around the park are MORE things to do.
No.1: Activity centres
There’s a paddle wheel game.
And a sand balance centre.
Plus, wall activities including these three.
This four person seesaw is good for kids under 5.
No.3: Toddler Rockers
And toddler wobble cars (and a pelican too!)
Hot tip: Did you know you can feed wild pelicans on the Gold Coast?
(It’s not far from here, at Tweed Heads)
No.4: Stand up spinner
One for the young at heart too!
No.5: Toddler playground
There’s a small climbing fort for the younger kids too
No.6: Swings and zip line
Swings for big kids and toddlers, and a short slide bar too
Laguna Lake Park Liberty Swing & Accessibility

What to bring: Bring your mossie spray and sunscreen.

Laguna Park toilets

That’s a big walk for toddlers who are busting.
They are not always open either, if council are running late.
Just a heads up.
