This park has so much to offer
Located along Darlington Avenue (Yarrabilba), this park offers multi-level water play areas, an adventure playground, great bike paths, outdoor gym and a large, grassy oval. Several gazebos with barbeques are located throughout the park, ideal for families wishing to enjoy both a picnic and play.

The water play area features a series of water squirters with overflow trickling down steps into two shallow pools. One of these pools provides an open area for splashing, whilst the other contains an array of stepping stones.

A few metres away, multiple fountains sprinkle water over the ground, allowing use by multiple parties.

Exposed concreting has been used throughout these areas - whilst this surface reduces slippage, it can be quite painful when falls do occur.

White material sails have been erected throughout the park, providing sections of shade over several play areas.

The adventure playground caters to children of all ages. Older children can enjoy a large flying fox and climbing net dome. A circular frame with multiple swings and two play forts with slides, tunnels and decking particularly appeal to the younger visitors.

There are four covered shelters with table and chairs and nearby barbecues. This is more than sufficient during the week, but early arrival or use of personal shade structures are recommended for the busier weekends.

Finally, a large toilet block provides handicapped facilities and baby changing stations.
