McDonald Park Playground and Bike Skills Track - Padbury

Updated: Apr 21

You will find this treasure of a park on the eastern side of Macdonald Park in Padbury. Part Nature Playground, part bike skills track this little gem has plenty of parking either off Giles Avenue or MacDonald Avenue. There are no toilet facilities but there is a drinking fountain.

A dual use footpath encircles the nearby playing fields.

The "road" winds itself in and around the magnificent trees and is very realistic with tight hairpin turns, lane markings, pedestrian crossings, speed humps and even an off road track. What a fantastic safe place for kids to ride their scooters and bikes and learn about road rules.


Some of the timber used in the nature play area has been reclaimed from the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour Finger Jetties.




There is also a small traditional playground with sand play suited for younger children.





As this play area is located behind Padbury Primary School it may get busy when school finishes for the day and parking will be an issue at both drop off and pick up times.
