The Secret Park


This park is known to locals as The Secret Park, maybe because nobody seems to know the name of the park, but the most likely reason is because locals want it to remain a secret.

It's located in Summerfields Estate and is tucked away at the back, so only locals know it's there. I have lived close to the park for nearly 6 years and only discovered it 2 years ago when friends invited us to The Secret Park.

There is never a problem with finding a car park and the children never need to wait their turn.

Viewing platform


The playground is basic but has enough to keep the kids entertained.

There is a short walking track around the back of the playground that goes around the swamp and has a viewing platform, which the children like to feed the ducks from.

We have seen rabbits, frogs, ducks and many other water birds in and around the swamp/wetlands.



There are two small parking bays, toilets, a water fountain and BBQ.

So if you are looking for a nice quiet park, I recommend this one.
