Brisbannittes - 26 February 2011, Redcliffe Meet-Up

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

PLEASE NOTE: CHANGE OF VENUE TO KALINGA PARK, END OF PARK AVENUE, CLAYFIELD - Time 11am

 

Because Suttons Beach is closed we have done a last minute change of venue. We are moving it to Kalinga Park and suggest that we set up a gazebo on a grassy area near the BBQ's, once you get there you should be able to find us fairly easily, give us a call or send us a message if you can't find us.

 

 

 

Kalinga Park

Location: end of Park Avenue, Clayfield

This park is brilliant! There’s a huge sandpit, a series of Aussie tree houses, a climbing wall and fun with sounds. On weekends and after school it is buzzing with children climbing, sliding and having lots of fun.

The large flat area beside the playground is perfect for parents to sit down and set up a picnic, plus there are leaf shaped tables, a few shelters and free electric barbeque facilities.

Kalinga Park also has a kid-size practice bikeway, a creek complete with ducks and a nearby dog off-leash area. If you live nearby, ride your bikes along the bike path that stretches from Toombul shopping centre to Grange and beyond.

 

 

 

If you need any more info, directions etc then just PM me and I will try to help. If you've been before then you should be able to spot us fairly easily, if not then just listen out for the English accents or a tell tale Tesco shopping bag! I'll try to remember to take ours.

 

Hope to see you there.

Be aware that the beach is out of bounds!

What's not allowed on the beach mate?

The beach has been closed since the floods, and I was told it will be Easter until it is open.

I go down every day and it is deserted. last weekend was busy, and lifeguards were patrolling to keep people off. I asked what the problem is and the floods brought a lot of nasties like E coli, asbestos, pesticides & heavy metals. Some people were walking on the beach, but the tide washes all these thing onto the sand & they are there for you to collect if you have a graze or scratch. The lagoon is open but anyone is brave to go in it after 9.00 on a weekend.

Sorry mate to bring this news, I have'nt had a swim for 6 weeks because of it.

The best spot at the moment is near the entrance, good grass area, and a good play grond for the kids.

Hi Smackey

 

Is this the park that has Digger's Drive running along side the creek?

 

If so, I think I know where it is, we might see you there.
