A great little park with extra activities

There is some equipment for younger children - some swings and ride-on rockers suit little kids - but this park is really suited to older children. It was a little scary watching our kids scramble to the top of the rope tower - make sure kids are always holding on to the rope! Next to the park is the Smith Creek walking trail which starts or ends here. If you start at Smithfield railway station, you can walk the 3 kms here on bitumen paths and relax a while. This would be an ideal place to come to do some bike riding on the trail. Younger kids would enjoy zooming around about their scooters on the perimeter of the playground.

There are excellent facilities here for families or large groups. Close to the carpark there is a large area with 8 tables and benches with BBQs. There are good shelters to protect from sun and rain and the toilets are located near here, but it is a bit far from the playground and you would need to have an adult on playground duty.

Stebonheath Park and playground is a good choice for a weekend outing and I liked it better here than Carisbrooke park. It is peaceful and has extra things to do such as walking or bike riding. There is a BMX track a little further east on Davoren Road.
