Small, local parks with great equipment always tick the box for me! Corymbia Park in Coomera (also commonly referred to as Genesis Park as it sits within the Genesis Estate) caters to both toddlers and older children with its wide variety of play pieces. Junior ninja warriors will love the large climbing frame and monkey bars, designed to test even the best of climbers. Little people will appreciate the shade covered, sand based play space with a mini version of the climbing frame, swings, digger, interactive play pieces and a see saw. Connecting the two play spaces is a small hill with two slides going down.
Being a neighbourhood park, Corymbia Park / Genesis Park has no toilets, so be aware of this. However, it’s a great spot for taking a walk or a bike ride, as just around the corner you’ll find a lake with ducks and swans. With lots of shade and a plenty of seating areas, it’s a great spot for packing a picnic and getting the kids out of the house for a few hours! Do pack insect repellent though, the mozzies can bite after rainy periods.
