The City Beach Oval Playground is a small nature based playground that has been built into the banks of the City Beach sports oval.
Now this is not just a playground it also now a home for the popular, heritage listed "Happy Tree" that fell during strong winds in 2019 at it's Hovea Crescent, City Beach home. Sections of the tree have even been preserved and layed around the playground as edging and the original smiley face and carvings now for the base of a little community library.
While the twin metal slides are a hit with the kids the playground also features a basket swing, ropes play and kids will love the steep climb up and down from the bottom to the top of the slides up the rocks and wooden steps.
Just keep in mind that the City Beach Oval is regularly used for sporting events, so if you kids happen to be playing at this oval it's a great distraction for younger siblings and well located so supervising parents can watch their child's game from the playground. Toilets at the clubrooms may be open, and if not it's just a short walk across the road to the City Beach Dining Precinct or City Beach Surf Club where toilets are located. There are no BBQs or picnic facilities near the playground however the City Beach Foreshore just across the road is perfect for BBQing and picnicking.
