Try This Cool Chair
Tucked in behind Beaudesert and Hamilton Roads is a hidden treat - a lovely large park. Named, predictably enough, Tonks Street Park it is interesting for 2 reasons. Firstly it is dedicated to a local Yuggera man, Boowangun who promoted indigenous culture, knowledge and language.

Secondly it has a really cool double swinging chair. Check this out. I'll bet you are just dying to try it out. I was.

How cool is this?


There is a covered area with barbeques and picnic tables and plenty of bench seating if you would rather sit and soak up the sun.

It is a large park with concrete paths suitable for bicycles, tricycles, roller blades and so on. At the back there is lots of grass for throwing a Frisbee, flying a kite or playing football or cricket.

A very spacious park.


And there is fish and chip shop just around the corner if you feel hungry after your run.
