Welcome to Browns Bay where you can choose from a wide range of shops, restaurants and cafes to find everything you need in a friendly seaside setting. Then wander over to the beach, check out the waves, people-watch, give the kids time on the adventure playground, eat ice-cream, collect shells, have a dip in the sea, lie back and watch the clouds .... just relax.
North Shore residents voted this playground their favourite in 2005 and 5 years on it’s still a magnet for local kids (and parents too, it’s right by sandy Browns Bay beach with beautiful views). This is a really big playground. The giant wooden ship with it’s wiggly slide is great fun and it’s lovely to see a range of climbing features to challenge the kids and get some energy out! The six-way swing is freaky fun as you get to swing towards each other and the spinner is another favourite. The younger kids seem to love the wiggly bridge. Sneak over the road to the fish and chips shop while you’re there by the way, one of the best in Auckland :) Oh, and for the older kids there’s am excellent skate park right beside the playground.
