Jun. 2020 • Family
The easy parking and wheelchair access was wonderful,a big beautiful tree, every branch lit up ,paved the way to Scarborough beach and the magical Gollum tree, hard to find at first, and I would recommend taking a torch but the whole trip was ful of little surprises

Delgihtful scenic spot for a swim / park play
Jan. 2020
A nice, non-busy beach that appears to not be takne advantage of by the locals. Parking is available, free and shaded in parts. Highly recommend a stop, and then visit FinFresh over the road for some truly delightful fish and chips. We had a great time as a small young family

A little gem often not fully appreciated by locals
Dec. 2019
Visitors are often amazed at the beauty of this place featuring a curving sandy beach lined with magnificent Norfolk pine trees. A safe swimming beach with no currents, better at high tide but still accessible at low tide. At low tide, the character of the beach radically changes with the beach framed by emerging reefs; a fascinating world for children to explore as long as they are aware of the potential dangers of the blue ring octopus.

The park is very well equipped for families with young children with a safe, fenced off entertainment area including free barbecues. Shade is provided by several grand, sprawling, Cotton trees. Plenty of space for families to enjoy the park. Limited shade in the open area. A half basket ball court for those who choose some exercise. A good array of restaurants/coffee shops and a general store just over the road.

Dog off leash beach
Nov. 2019
Wonderful to have a local beach to take our dog to socialise and swim. The beach area is big enough that it is never crowded.

Best facilities for the family
Mar. 2019 • Family
Scarborough Beach Park offers fantastic facilities for families. With a recent upgrade to the walkways so people are not walking on top of each other, a jumping pillow for the young, BBQ,s everywhere and covered tables to keep the sun off when dining. A great park for kids with the usual swings, climbing trees and many other attractions to keep them busy.

Taking my grandson and granddaughter out
For the day Saturday morning
Mar. 2019 • Family
I need a place for my grandson to play
Scarborough Park is excellent as it has these fantastic large trees to climb
I took a book and sat under the trees on a bench so the children could have regular contact with me
My granddaughter is older so had no trouble in climbing
There is a play area for younger children next to this spot
It kept him entertained for ages
I took water and snacks although there are shops right across with a good marked crossing for easy access
Toilets pretty close by and the ocean right there
So we did do a beach walk to collect shells
Not a lot of parking as it was the weekend
So get there early
Bar-B-Ques and shelter sheds for those who want a family gathering
It’s very popular with all ages
The afternoon is always breezy as the sea air is whipped up
It’s a long way to go but I think worth the effort!!

Worth it just for the climbing trees
Feb. 2019 • Family
Best climbing trees ever, just awesome. Nice view and open spaces. Breezy too, even on a hot day. Hard to fault, but more shaded tables would have been good.

Helps retain that Scarborough "Village" feel.....
Dec. 2018 • Friends
Fits in well with the rest of Scarborough and helps retain the Family Orientated atmosphere that exists all over this beautiful Peninsula... families do not have to spend a lot of money to have a lovely day out on the edge of Moreton Bay.
