Peter Pan's Playground is small, fully-enclosed adventure playground with slides, water spouts, and climbing apparatus suitable for small children. There is also an open air cafe, Grace's Place.
It is immediately to the east of the Yellowave Beach Sports venue and also has it's own train stop on the Volks Electric Railway line, officially called Half Way Station, but often referred to as Peter Pan's.
In Madeira Drive before the war there was a pierrot show. The rest of the site was a bowling green. After the war it became Peter Pan's playground. It was run by the Maxwells, who had many playgrounds throughout the country. John Maxwell was a great friend of J.M.Barrie and that's why Barrie allowed him to call his playground Peter Pan's Playground.
