It was a very nice time with friends and family! There were 2 babies with us (13 and 17 months), they had a lot of fun! We too, sitting under trees, a wonderful view, fresh wind! An unbelievable place to go with kids!

Nice little place across from the meriton sundale serviced apartments. Easy to access via light rail. A quiet area on the gold coast and close to the nearby park for kiddies.

Gold Coast Council have created a super safe ground for the kids while keeping the grownups in mind. Let the kids go and sit back with a coffee and enjoy the views.
