Where to come for fun in the sun
This beautiful park and playground is simply a haven for families offering a picturesque setting for picnics, nature and carefree play.

A nice entrance to this compact park is the beautiful wooden walkway that brings you out onto the viewing platform for the lake. There's a huge range of bird life around the lake and you could spend hours just sitting back and watching nature at its best. We've spotted ducks, black swans, moorhens, coots and kookaburras on the lake as well as colourful fish.

Away from the lake setting, there are picnic benches and shelters and some public use BBQs. For families, particularly, the kids seem to love the well appointed playground. It's a great play area for a mixed age range with an area perfect for toddlers and a separate play structure for bigger kids. Add in some swings, some rocking pieces and a rather fast twirling spinning wheel (hang on or fly off) all on a soft bed of sand and you've got some great ingredients for a fun outing guaranteed to burn off some energy.

Fab little playground nestled in the trees

There's a small car park nearby but unfortunately there are no toilets which is a major downside when you're with kids. Aside from that, it's a pretty stunning park and a great spot to see local bird life.
