Broadwater Parklands is a world class community and cultural parkland, loved by Gold Coast residents and tourists alike. At the heart of the parklands is a vast expanse of green that is ideal for family picnics and fun. The Great Lawn hosts some of the city's most popular events such as the Gold Coast Airport Marathon, Carols by Candlelight and the World Championship Triathlon.

The Rockpools water playground is the first of its kind on the Gold Coast, and is a hit with the kids! The Rockpools has shallow wade-height water with spouting water animals and waterfalls. There are a variety of pool areas and creek beds with water filling up and emptying on timers. Pop jets squirt water throughout the play area and waterfalls cascade down the rockpools.

There is also fishing off the 100-metre long pier and a swimming enclosure where you can enjoy a dip, which also has a jumping pontoon.
