Country Paradise Parklands is a wonderful, open space, community-managed parklands situated in Nerang. The 13.25 hectare site was purchased by the City of Gold Coast in 2011. The sprawling grounds feature stables and a large paddock for the Healing Hooves program, a community garden, a large main building and workshop for the Men's Shed. There is also a kitchen for the OzHarvest food rescue program and a photographic studio (Shed 11) for disadvantaged youth, to name but a few of the facilities and community groups operating from the parklands. An adventure playground is currently being constructed and will be completed soon.
