Grommet beach is a beautiful beach and an excellent place to turn the kids loose safely to play. This is also a beach that has great accessibility for those with mobility needs. The play areas are all designed with kids in mind. Excellent.

We went to Grommet Playground at around 9 am on a weekday and the playground is empty. My kids had so much fun in the playground. I love the fact that it is accessible by wheelchair and caters to people with disabilities.

Enjoyable space for kids on the beach. Nice place for adults to rest and let their kids play. Close to fishing at Rudee. Located near Rudee Inlet with parking and restrooms nearby.

We surreyed up and down the boardwalk and found this unexpected treat at the very southern end of the boardwalk. Wonderful play area for our 4 and 6 year old, and we will be back again!

A great way to run your kids out before or after dinner. The area is clean, well kept and there is coverage to block the sun. There is even a fairly well-kept bathroom nearby.

Great park for kids to play, climb and explore. For real small children it's a bit challenging to keep eyeballs on them, but doable.
