There are apparently almost 70 parks and reserves in the Coffs Harbour area!
The newest and biggest in Coffs Harbour. Has a lot of different equipment, something for all ages. Don’t miss the big dragon design on the pathway which entwines through the whole park.
Gorgeous setting, set right on the beach foreshore. Fully enclosed fencing. Great modern park with BBQ facilites nearby.
The newest park in Coffs Harbour, set just behind the beach a great little park with some different structures from your regular park. Uses natural materials such as wood poles, stumps and ropes. Features a giant gonna scuplture for kids to practice their balancing. Has BBQ area as well.
Jetty Beach Reserve
Two parks a few metres apart, one for younger kids and the other for older kids. Good equipment but needs updating. Close to beach and lots of BBQ facilities.
Meadow/Combine St Park
Smaller park set in a nice reserve. A small section with swings for little kids but we like the huge fire fox which spans across the park, great for older kids.
Park Beach Reserve
Nice setting alongside the creek with BBQ facitilies nearby. Good little park, will keep kids occupied.
Just outside Cafe Fiasco (we like coffee shops next to playgrounds!) Good place to have a sit and relax while looking for homegoods.
Sapphire Beach/Beachstone Cafe Park
Fantastic playground, very clean and well kept next to Beachstone Cafe. Great area for little kids and also a bit climbing net and flying fox for older kids. BBQ facilities and close to beach.
North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens
Where: end of Hardacre St, off Harbour Dr (near TAFE) Coffs Harbour
What: turf maze, nature trails a new Sundial and the 1st Sunday in May is Children’s Day where the Japanese Koinobori kites fly over the lake, and there are many activities specifically for children.
Heading South out of town, turn right at the KFC/Goodguys traffic lights, then right at the roundabout. Follow the road until you find the playground on the left. Good equipment with some great pathways around the lakes where your kids can ride their bikes or scooter. View the short You Tube video:
