Mangrove Jack Park, Helensvale

Ahoy there! Boat fans will be pleased with Mangrove Jack Park, with it’s paddle steamer inspired play structure accompanied by a little motor boat with water skis!!

Situated alongside a small inlet off the Coomera River, this playground has a fun nautical theme to inspire the imagination. For those who are fans of the Oxenford Lake park and walk, Mangrove Jack Park is like a smaller version, and has a kilometre long flat footpath around the lake – perfect for bringing the bikes along!

At the main park, you’ll find a shaded playground with a see-saw, swings, climbing structure, mini boat and play water skis. There is also a small platform over looking the lake, perfect for spotting the fish and ducks swimming by.

About halfway along the walk around the lake, you’ll find a second, smaller playground designed for older kids, with a large climbing net and balance obstacles.

While there are no toilets at the playground, there is a pedestrian underpass at the Monterey Keys roundabout (near the entrance to the park carpark), which provides safe access to the toilet block on the opposite side of Hope Island Road.

  • Address: Parking is available off Hope Island Rd, just before the Monterey Keys Dr roundabout (see red dot on map below)
  • Facilities: toilets available via pedestrian underpass at River Downs Park. Shade covered playground, off street parking.
