Next to the playground there is a building which is home to 'Harry's Kiosk', where you can grab a coffee, hot chocolate, or something to eat from the breakfast or lunch menu.

The building also has toilet facilities, and there are drinking fountains nearby.

One of the things I love about the park are the mosaics on the ground near the playground. They are colourful and showcase a range of different shapes and patterns.

As with Citizen's Park, there are a number of signs nearby, detailing the history of the area and its people.

Overall, it's a nice park with a great playground. If you're looking for other things to do when you've finished at the park, the beach is close by, while the town centre, Citizen's Park, Fort Queenscliff and the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum are also not too far away.
