David Evans Reserve

Australia / The Pacific

The David Evans Reserve was named after David Evans (1973-1995), a young Gold Coaster who loved the city’s many lifestyle opportunities. His accidental death at 22 was recognised by the Council following a request from his family and friends to name the park in his honour. His family described David as “typifying the young Gold Coast man with his love of surfing, sports and the outdoor life, and obvious enjoyment of the lifestyle that our wonderful piece of Australia provides.”The reserve provides a gateway to the beach and a green open space on Main Beach Parade. Here there are opportunities for surfing and water sports, swimming, walking and keeping fit, and beyond the beaches, vast sub-tropical rainforests providing endless opportunities to explore breathtaking scenery.
