A little bribery can go a long way to making your day just that little bit easier. Grocery shopping can be a headache with little tots, but we have a solution for all Green Point Aldi shoppers – if the kids behave while you walk the aisles, promise them a play at Bayside Drive Reserve Playground.

The playground has a swirling slippery dip, a climbing frame, and a rock-climbing wall. There’s a naughts-and-crosses board and a shopfront for budding chefs. There are two swings – one for bubs and one for older children. And being new, the mulch is still nice, chunky mulch (it hasn’t yet disintegrated into dirt), so the kids won’t need to be thrown in the bath the minute they get home.

It’s right on the waterfront, so it makes for a beautiful spot to have a play and enjoy a picnic. We recommend throwing in the picnic rug, a football, and some snacks, as it’s a lovely spot to just sit and soak up the sun.

There’s a large grassed area perfect for a game of rugby or chasings, and at low tide the mangroves provide a fun area for mud-crab spotting and mud sloshing. Or, if you’re lucky enough to own a kayak or canoe, it’s a great place to take off for a little paddle.
