Paradise Point Park is located at the North End of the Gold Coast and is a quiet haven for locals ‘in the know’ about this little gem of a suburb.

The Paradise Point parklands runs the length of The Esplanade and is a lovely area for those wanting to relax and enjoy their day with family and friends. Not only can you spend the day in a beautiful park with excellent facilities, you’ll also get to enjoy the visual delights of the mansions and super yachts of Sovereign and Ephraim Islands across the Broadwater.

All about Paradise Point Park

With over five kilometers stretching the length of The Esplanade, the Paradise Point Park features a massive playground area with a number of large covered rotundas at the south end, and smaller playgrounds and BBQ areas dotted along the wide and inviting footpath that meanders north alongside the Broadwater.

People and kids alike are welcome to walk, run, ride and scooter along and is leashed-dog friendly.

Swimming at Paradise Point

The views over the water will allow you to catch glimpses of mansions and super yachts of the rich and (in)famous – you may even spot Clive Palmers home away from home. The Broadwater is calm and inviting swim on a warm day and is a popular spot for those wanting to enjoy the beachfront. Boats and jet skis are also popular here and there is a protected netted swimming area if preferred. The swimming enclosure is staffed with a lifeguard during the warmer months only.

Located directly across from the main park area are a number of cafes and restaurants serving up great coffee, ice creams, gelato and fish and chips. The park is extremely popular for birthday parties and picnics with people known to be sitting at rotundas from 5am (!!) to secure a prime position. With the lovely trees located along the waterfront, there are many places to sit with a picnic rug and take in the surrounds of all that is on offer.

Not as busy as Southport Broadwater Parklands, this park is smaller and is well kept and clean. It can get busy on weekends, so the free on-street parking can become a premium. There are toilets located at each end of the park so if you do decide to set up in the middle – be prepared to walk to either end to use the restroom areas.

Grab a picnic and rug, the kids, swimmers and scooters and head on down. The Paradise Point Park is a lovely spot to enjoy on a spring weekend. See you there!
