With views of Newcastle Harbour and close to the beach, Foreshore Park is a top spot to visit. It’s a great place for a family picnic with a playground, barbecues and plenty of space for kids to run around. There’s also ponds with ducks and other water birds.

The Foreshore Park playground features a swing set including a liberty swing, a large climbing structure and rockers.

The landscaping around the playground provides plenty of opportunities for kids to use their imagination. When we visited, there were two little boys searching for giant snakes within the rocks and shrubbery!

You can also have fun in the former frog pond. Drained of water, the Frog Pond in Pacific Park has become a popular place for little ones to ride bikes, scooter and skate.
