Thorneside Park | Beth Boyd Park
Beth Boyd Park is a lovely seaside playground with lots of opportunity for play together with the facilities for a wonderful memory making picnic
Beth Boyd Park – The Fun
This lovely Thorneside park is seaside and a wonderful destination for kids of all ages. It features 2 fort like structures with plenty of climbing and sliding opportunities, a climbing tunnel and a slide built into the hill. Beth Boyd park is sand based which is a favourite for many parents because kids are kept cleaner for longer. It has an awesome digger built into the sand that will prove to be a winner for many budding earth movers. There is a pedal bike playground for older kids as well as a quarter basketball court, so it caters for the entire family.
Brisbane Kids can use the ship shaped fort for lots of fun imaginative play pretending to be on the high seas searching for treasure. This is made more authentic by the fact that it overlooks the sea. Beth Boyd Park is surrounded by sand and water and so there is plenty of opportunity for sand and water play and you could bring along some match box cars or diggers to make the most of this feature through the creation of sand cities and the like. This can be extended further using the seaweed and seashells along the beach front. Potential for kite flying on windy days.
