You could holiday in Halliday Park

Park sign
The sign on Mitcham Road.

This large park is very wheelchair friendly as it is flat and the paths are very wide.

Wide paths are a feature of the park.

The centre of the park is dominated by an extensive and colourful playground. Much of it is situated under a stand of large trees, which would be very inviting on a hot day.

The play equipment is very colourful.

Scattered around the park are park benches, with many under the trees in the playground area, which also boasts picnic tables and BBQs.

Solitude is available in the large park.

Along the western end of the park a meandering path passes through a tree and shrub area which attracts the local bird life. The main species sighted were several currawongs.

Away from the central playground area are large expanses of grassy areas, which would be ideal for ball games for children of all ages.

Being a large park it could accommodate lots of people without being crowded.

On the Mitcham Roadside is the Mitcham War Memorial, featuring a soldier with bugle atop a tall pedestal which has the names of local servicemen of the two World Wars. Around the base are four plaques commemorating the servicemen of other conflicts that Australian was involved in.
