PotW – Lyall Bay Beach, Wellington

Lyall Parade, Wellington
In a southerly, this playground is not for the faint-hearted, located as it is right on the side of the beach, exposed to the wind. But on a sunny day with a light breeze, it’s a great spot to blast out the cobwebs.
The play equipment here is simple, with a pirate theme. A swing, a slide, something to climb on, and lovely views – including to watching planes come in and out of the airport.
On a good day, parking can be difficult, as it’s a popular walking, dog-walking, surfing and swimming beach, plus the famed Maranui café is only a couple of hundred meters down the road in one direction, with the Spruce Goose a similar distance the other way. Toilets are available in the Lifeguard building just west of the play area.
Looking at Google Street View, this playground has been upgraded since we last visited.
