I write about health, travel, parenting (and other topics that take my fancy) for newspapers, magazines, and corporate clients. I'd love your comments on my articles, or to talk with you further at wellnessinwords.com.au or on Twitter

Are you in on the secret of this hidden gem of a park?
Something different from every other park? Tick! Beside the playground (outside the fenced area) is a small lake. Once they're done in the playground, your kids can rock hop across the causeway, watch the families of ducks, spot dragonflies and look for frogs.
Feeding the ducks, however, is not encouraged. Which is fair enough when this lake provides such a healthy, natural habitat in which to find their food.
The play equipment links to the nearby wildlife with blocks you can line up to show the lifecycle of dragonflies, kookaburras and frogs.
The playground is best suited to toddlers and preschool kids. They might want to bring their bikes or scooters as a mini race track - complete with road signs - runs through the playground. It's a safe place to practise their skill on two wheels.
