elwood foreshore playgroundWhenever we head to this playground, there's hardly a sole in sight! This little gem we call pirate ship park (it will be obvious once you arrive) and is set back from the road AND the beach making it a quiet spot for a bit of play and run around. That is, after you've done a bike ride down the coastal path or watched the parashooters land!

harleston-park-elsternwickBig (huge) super slide alert at Harleston Park! If the kids aren't clambering all over the super slide, you can relax a little at the more gentler paced playground area a stone's throw away.

This play area is complete with towers and ramps, slides, climbers, poles, abacus, bridges, interactive bead frame, and small tunnels. There's also a see-saw, monkey bars, flying fox, two sets of swings including baby swings.

You'll want to stay a while and dig in so the kids can enjoy a paddle and you can take in the serenity!
