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.

Take a sneak peek at this fun Gold Coast playground below.

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.

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.

Laguna Park toilets

The only downside to this park is that the toilets are at least 50 metres walk from the playground.

That’s a big walk for toddlers who are busting.

They are not always open either, if council are running late.
