The Broadwater Parklands are centrally located and span three kilometres along the beautiful Broadwater in Southport. The Parklands not only offer fantastic views of the Surfers Paradise skyline but also offer numerous wide open spaces for you to enjoy.
You can hold picnics and barbecues in the Parklands, stroll along the Terrace rooftop, fish off the pier, swim or participate in sports on the Great Lawn. The kids will love splashing around in the Rockpools which is an exciting sculptural playground.
