I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

The triangle of land that makes up Davidson Park sits right next to Normanhurst Station, between the train tracks of the Northern Line and Denman Parade. It is a very small area that could easily have gone to waste, but instead is a space that all locals can enjoy.
One of the most noticeable things about this park is that the trees haven't been cut down to open up the space. They have been left where they have always stood and offer quite a lot of shade. There is some open space though, at the widest section of the park, furthest from the station.
The main draw card of Davidson Park is the brightly coloured play equipment, which includes a slippery dip and two swings. There are also two picnic benches, with one of them located right next to the equipment (the other is up above it among the trees).
Located between the train line and a road, this park isn't the most peaceful place. The issue isn't constant noise though - Normanhurst isn't the busiest area - it's the fact that it can get so quiet between trains and cars that when one does come along, it's all the more noticeable.
