Tusmore Park is a magical place where kids take charge as they explore the greenery around them. the park features pretty plants and vegetation, as well as fun play equipment for the kids. It is a must visit park that everyone can enjoy.



The park itself contains the First Creek catchment, and the creek curves through the park. This gives the park a lot of its charm. You can enjoy a picnic by the side of the creek, or just have fun crossing over the many bridges that connect the park. There is plenty of space where kids can run around, perfect for playing ball games of a game of chasey. If you're wanting a heartier lunch while you're at the park there are barbecue facilities on hand.





The playground at Tusmore Park is not contained, and becomes an entire play area for children to explore. There are slides, climbing frames, swings, and a sandpit all for children to enjoy. There is a very magical quality to the playground and the entire park, children will feel like they are joining fairy friends while playing here.





Another fun thing for the kids is the undercover paddling pool, a great free way to cool down during summer. This is an unsupervised pool, so there a no lifeguards around, if you're taking the kids here for a paddle you'll have to make sure you're watching them.



Parents will enjoy the tennis courts, where they can have a few games while the kids play. These are well maintained courts that are free to use, just make sure that you are wearing the appropriate footwear. Only people wearing proper tennis shoes may enter the court, and you cannot bring food or drinks onto it.



Tusmore Park is a fun place where everyone will be able to find something to do. It has so many facilities that are unheard of at many parks, but the best bit is they are all free to use. So whether you're needing somewhere to cool down in summer, or wanting a hit of tennis, put Tusmore Park on your list.
