Galapagos Park, Pacific Pines

Galapagos Park at Pacific Pines is a huge green space with plenty of pathways through the bush, and open space for playing. The playground is located in the middle of the parklands, set back out of view from the road.

A fun playground for all ages, it does require some climbing ability on the main structure to reach the slides. Other features include a seesaw, swings and interactive game panels.

It is unfortunate there are no toilets here, as it’s a great spot to stay for a while. The open green space is perfect for kicking a ball, playing cricket or throwing a frisbee. The pathways through the bush are ideal for bike and scooter rides, and everything is ideally located away from nearby traffic.
