The NEW Lions Park on Gosford waterfront is open! The fences were removed in early April 2019 and Playing in Puddles stopped by for a play.
Being smack-bang on Brisbane Water, this has to be one of the most picturesque parks on the Coast.
You’ll find a cute rocking dolphin, a spinner, a double swing set (with bucket and regular swing) and a cool play structure complete with balance beam, slippery dip, rope net and fireman pole.
A bike/scooter path circles the entire park and grassed area and makes for a nice track for new riders. Plus, there’s the walking path that circumnavigates Brisbane Water all the way to the Brian McGowan Bridge (and beyond) for people looking for a long bike ride or stroller walk.
The Boatshed cafe (0243 257 216) is open Wednesday 10am-5pm, Thursday 10am-5pm, Friday 10am-10pm, Saturday 9am-10pm, Sunday 9am-7pm.
