This park is surrounded by mature gums, which makes it an excellent option in summer when most other playgrounds are baking in the heat. Most of it is fenced, so it’s tops if you have a child who likes to do a runner.
The equipment is suitable for toddlers, so parents can take up a spot on the grass or at one of the surrounding picnic tables knowing that the kids can happily amuse themselves. This is a popular spot for mothers groups mid-week and kids birthday parties come the weekend.
