The Park has lots of space to put down a picnic blanket and have a relaxing picnic lunch
Located next to Citizen's Park in Queenscliff, Princess Park
is a lovely waterfront recreation area. There are some beautiful tall trees, plenty of open grassy areas, toilets, a playground with modern equipment, a cafe, and free parking.
The playground is perfect for children of all ages, and features:
Swings (1x standard swing, 2x toddler swings, and 1x disabled-friendly swing)
Fort with slide and climbing wall
A small lighthouse for children to play in; and
Swings at Princess Park Playground
Round 'Basket' Swing
The lighthouse at the playground
A rope climbing structure and wooden fort with slides and climbing wall
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.

The facilities are good, with free parking, bike parking racks, drinking fountains, rubbish bins (general waste and recycling), and dog waste bags all available.
Bike Parking Racks
There are rubbish bins, recycling bins and dog waste bags
There is free parking available near the playground, and also on streets surrounding the reserve.
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.
