Arkles Bay Playground is located in Ferry Road, opposite Hawaiian Parade in Arkles Bay in Whangaparaoa in Auckland, New Zealand.

Close to the playground is Arkles Bay Path which goes from the playground, past the pond with pukekos then to Arkles Bay Beach with stunning view of Rangitoto. The path is relatively flat until this point, but the next part goes up a steep bush track with lots of steps to Whangaparaoa Road.

Little Manly Beach is not far away and is a safe beach to swim at with the kids.

A short drive away is the Coast Plaza shopping mall in Stanmore Bay with some places to get a bite to eat. Or if you feel like a visit to a swimming pool and splashpad you can visit Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre.
