I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

There's not much at Western Crescent Park, but that's alright. Considering how isolated in is, I'd say probably not many people use the park (it's located along the narrow residential strip that makes up the northern section of Westleigh).
The place consists mainly of a playground, which looks to be surrounded by bush. However, there is actually a road on the other side of all the trees; Western Crescent. Despite the park taking its name from this road, access is actually much better from Quarter Sessions Road.
The set play of play equipment here is quite large. It's also very bright and colourful. Behind it is a set of swings. There is a lone table for picnics too, though lots of grass welcomes you lay a down rug or get some games going.
Despite its isolation, the park seems to be pretty well maintained. When I stopped by, there was someone working in the remnants of bushland between the park and Quarter Sessions Road (this road goes all the way to Duffy Avenue, in central Westleigh, so the park is easy to find from out of the area).
It is a lovely park however there is a FANTASTIC park further down the road called Ruddock park.Fabulous Pirate ship climbing equipment,bicycle tracks,oval,tennis courts,lots of picnic tables,grassy areas,a dog park across the road,BBQ areas and lots of parking.WESTLEIGH shops are just around the corner.Now this is a real hidden gem,
