HIGHLIGHTS
Start out along the path at Active Park where the outdoor gym equipment is the journey beings to loop around the park where you can show the kids the community herb garden. The Active Park suits all ages with plenty of open space to kick a ball and a younger kid’s playground. Continuing along the path be sure to take close attention when crossing the road that link the paths especially along Indigo Road and Bell Vista Blvd.

The journey will take you around to Quinn Park after crossing the road with a larger playground which has lots of climbing and rope activities as well a cafe where you can take your dog. Continue the journey south past the entrance to Arbour Estate and follow the path around to a right bend where you move along the edge with a nature reserve where wildlife like birds become louder as you sound of cars soon fade away. You connect up with a smaller playground but this one features a flying fox swing with another spot to relax with the family, plenty of drinking fountains, tables and shade sails to play under along the way.

HOW TO GET THERE
The best place to park from all possible entrances onto Bell Vista Blvd to turn into Indigo Road which is on your left if heading from Caloundra Road 150m straight past the roundabout making sure you don’t turn right onto Dumbarton Drive that’s on the same roundabout. If you’re heading towards Caloundra Road you will need to turn around on the same round about and follow same directions Follow Indigo Road around where it has a sharp left turn and continue where you will see parking bays to your left almost right away where with the path just metres from the car.

If you live close by within short distance of the track just hope onto the closest point and continue the direction to suit your connection home.
