Placed just south of the Wailua River, Lydgate Park is like a dream come true for families traveling with children and babies. This beach park has a lot to provide to families: big and small pavilions for parties and shade, bathrooms, picnic tables, a lifeguard, showers, 2 big community built playgrounds, large grassy areas and walking paths. The beach consists of 2 pounds protected by rock wall barrier that dissipates the power of the incessant east side wind waves. The big ponds is amazing for swimming and try out your fresh snorkeling expertise, while the smaller pond is best for wading with your toddlers and infants.
The ponds were built to permit the water to move freely via the spaces between the rocks. Juvenile fishes also move into the pond through these crevices and if they remain inside grow and pond, they are not capable to escape. That is amazing news for those of you that like to snorkel. I often see over 30 species of fishes when I snorkel here. Eels and turtles can also be found in the pond from time to time, especially after a top tide. The saved area, posted lifeguard, calm water, and variety of fish make this the best location to teach your kids how to snorkel. You can rent snorkel gar at any of the numerous snorkel rental places around the island or pick up an affordable set at Wal-Mart near the airport.
Openly across the parking lot from the swimming area is a big community-built playground. There are slides, bars, walkways, tires, a volcano, swinging bridges, title benches and all that superb soft sawdust they pour on the ground to pad any falls. A second bridge and playground is placed about ¼ mile away just south of this area. To get there you may drive, take a perfect walk along the beach or use one of the many walking paths. Baby gear rentals & beach equipment rental kauai helps you to carry your baby in walking paths near the beach.
The Wailua place in general is rich in ancient historical sites. These places are worth investigating. At the end of Lydgate Park, you will find the Hauola area of Refuge. This location of Refuge was considered a secure zone for commoners who had broken a kapu. So relax and enjoy with baby gear rentals & beach equipment rental kauai.
