So many things to try
I drive past this park regulalry and noticed how huge and really beautiful it is. Today I stopped for a closer look.

It is even better up close. The playground, as well as the usual equipment, has a super cool flying fox and a climbing wall! My kids would have loved this when they were younger.

Climb the wall.


Next to the playground is the fitness circuit. It is clean and has clear instructions on how to use each piece of equipment. There is also a 25m running track and a basketball hoop.

Even the picnic tables are special. Three extra large tables sit under shade beside an electric barbecue. You could have a huge party here. It'd be fantastic for a birthday party or playgroup.

Room for a big crowd.


There is also a basketball court, a tennis court and a multi-use open floor space to encourage gymnastics, dance and martial arts.

All this is just a fraction of the whole area. It is so lush and pretty with room to run, play football.

So huge, so beautiful.


Dogs must be on a leash here but you can walk across the bridge to the Dog Park. The drinking fountain has a special bowl at the bottom for Fido.

Even the toilets are lovely being artistically painted.

It's easy to find on Paradise Road, Kingston, right beside Mabel Park State School. It's very likely busy after school but during the day, it is often empty.

It's not just people who love this park.
