You'd be forgiven for walking through Souter Park and thinking you'd somehow stepped into England. There aren't many of the yellow Australian gums, and no patches of dry dusty dirt. Souter Park is filled with luscious green lawn and short, squat trees, and is a quaint spot for a lovely picnic.
The lawns at Souter Park have many uses. The Southern area of the park can be used as a dog exercise area during the hours of 5pm and 10am, while up the northern end dogs must remain on a leash at all times. There is ample space for playing games of football or soccer, and paths wide through the park for those riding or walking. Souter Park also has a basketball hoop for those wanting to practice their aim.
Souter Park features a fenced play area, which means children can play without having to worry about nearby dogs. The playground features slides and swings, and has areas appropriate for children of all ages. The playground is surrounded by sand, which aids many children's enjoyment. The playground is in a shaded area so parents can be less concerned about sunburn and sunstroke.
There are facilities at Souter Park for picnics and barbeques. There are undercover barbeque areas with tables and benches, as well as a barbeque that has only the cover of trees. There are also plenty of benches for those who may just wish to sit and enjoy the park.
Souter Park is a beautiful space, the trees give plenty of shady cover but there is still open space. Kids will love the playground, and they will also love all of the small hills, perfect for rolling down. It is a very charming park that can facilitate many outdoor activities.
