Tired and hungry from hours in the sun? The playgrounds are well-supported by a conveniently located West Coast Park Mcdonald’s. What’s nice about the Mcdonald’s West Coast Parks is the outdoor pavilion where you can eat (it’s covered and has fans but is outdoors) so you can watch the kids play nearby while you enjoy that iced coffee. West Coast Park Mcdonald’s also offers a Drive-Thru option too. This section of West Coast Park can be accessed by West Coast Park Carpark 3.
