We are really blessed on the Northern Gold Coast with so many new and well designed playground spaces for our kids. Westfield Helensvale’s playspace is not an exception.
The problem I have, is that there never is enough time to to shop, play and eat in one trip.
So even though we always add a playground visit to the end of our shopping trip I highly recommend you schedule in a playground visit to coincide with one of Westfield Helensvale’s free weekly kids sessions and make a toddler morning out of a visit to Westfield Helensvale.
