Evandale Parklands is also home to a swimming lagoon, popular with nippers training and recreational swims.  The lagoon offers a sheltered swimming environment.  The surrounding amenities include toilets and showers perfect for that after swim refresh.

There are ample picnic areas with barbeques and shaded seating in the parklands, as well as a sanded volleyball court.  Parties, get togethers and even wedding ceremonies are popular in this scenic park.

The kids playground is a great one – two separate slides and climbing spaces, all with sand underfoot and shade sails for those hot days.  The playground is also fully fenced, great for the littlies!

If exercise is what you are after, the lagoon offers a 677 metre loop.  There are free exercise equipment stations located around the loop, perfect for strength training!

If you haven’t been to the Parklands for years, check it out – it has lost none of its majestic charm, and is a reminder of the tranquillity of Gold Coast parks bordering the beautiful Nerang River.
