Chimney Park is a unique park in Norwood, with some historical character. It might not have all the features of some more exciting parks or playgrounds, but it still makes quite a nice picnic spot. Bring the kids along and they'll be able to run around, and they'll enjoy the giant chimney that sits in the centre of the park.

There is some good open space at Chimney Park, perfect for fun games of soccer or footy. There is plenty of place for the kids to run around, even if they just want to play a game of tag. If you bring around a kite or a frisbee you'll also get to use the space. The path running through the park can be a good place to teach the kids to ride, as in the quiet suburban streets you're not going to have too much worry for cars.

There might not be a playground, but that doesn't mean that the kids can't have fun. The'll love checking out the main feature of the park, the large old chimney. It is the base of an old stack that stood in that very spot almost 100 years ago. It is a unique historical aspect, and some kids will like the opportunity to image the space as it might have looked all that time ago.

It is a nice place to picnic, and you'll find some good places on the grass to set up a spot. Unfortunately there aren't any picnic tables, or barbecue facilities, so you'll have to bring along your own picnic blanket if you want something to sit on. It is also a good place to go and relax on your own, the benches in the park make a great place to sit with a book.

Unfortunately there are no dogs allowed at the park, even on a leash, so you can't utilise this space that would be perfect for your four-legged friends. This is the main downside of the park.

Chimney Park is a simple park, with some unique features that make it an interesting spot to go. For a romantic picnic, or a family outing, this is a nice place to go.
