Fun Ship Playground

COVID-19 update

All Esplanade playgrounds are open. Gatherings restricted to groups of 100 people.

The Endeavour Fun Ship structure was opened in 2006. This replaced an iconic, old timber fun ship that had brought hours of pleasure to many local and visiting families. The new Fun Ship is a unique playground that fits well with the marine theme of the Esplanade and has many links to the original playground.

Close to the Fun Ship Playground is the BBQ Sandpiper and picnic tables. Due to its popularity, BBQ Sandpiper is not available for private hire but is free for public use. The playground is also located next to the Fun Ship Parkland which can accommodate visiting attractions and various community events.

Toilets are located a short distance to the north west of the Fun Ship Playground.
