Broadwater Parklands - The Beauty of Nature at Nerang River Side Aug 22, 2011
Broadwater Parklands area is at the edge of Nerang River. It is accessible from Nerang St (or other streets crossing Marine Parade) near Australia Fair. The place is beautiful, with a bit of sandy place as well (much alike the beach). The view of the yachts’ anchored nearby even adds the luxurious sense of the place, but yet it’s so calm (quite different with the Surfers Paradise beach area). The parks (indeed there are several parks along the shore) are spacious, beautifully fresh and green, equipped with barbeque areas and huts. (Later on I’d find out that Broadwater Park was apparently master-planned project, cost around 32 million AUD, opened in 2009. The project reconnects the CBD area to the harbour). Within the Broadwater Parklands, the area is divided into North, Central, and South Precinct. The North Precinct has ‘The Pier’, which is the main entrance, and also the large Southport Aquatic Centre. The Central Precinct has the vast area of lawn, children’s playground, enclosed swimming lagoon, and the ‘Pandanus Point’- an area filled with Pandanus trees and equipped with benches. The South Precinct has the Anzac Memorial Park, ‘The Hill’ – a green area with hills for more of walking challenges, and the walking tracks “Nature Walk”. The landmark of ‘The Hill’ is ‘Maddie and Bear’, the large sculpture created by John Cox, local artist, and also Academy Award winner for the visual effect in 1995 movie ‘Babe’ (the movie itself went on to be nominated for 7 Oscars but lost to ‘Braveheart’).
