One of the things that was noticeable while walking through the park was the traffic noise, as the park is right next to Olsen Avenue, and less than 200 metres from Gold Coast Highway.

However, for those who don't mind the noise, the park has a definite advantage of being in close proximity to the shopping centre and public transport.

Recommendation:
Overall, this park would be perfect for dog walking, short walks, or those looking for somewhere to sit outdoors and enjoy some fish and chips or a picnic lunch.

The basketball area is also a nice feature and makes this park an attractive option for children who prefer basketball to playground equipment.

If you're looking for a playground with more play equipment or a park that's quieter and located away from the busy roads, there are a couple of good options nearby, including:
Cos Zantiotis Park (less than 500m away)
Nick Pavlis Park (just over 1km away)
Norm Rix Park (approximately 1.5km away)

Toilets:
