This park is a beautiful leafy, shady spot and great for kids of all ages really. Heaps of space to spread out, play ball games and run around AND it’s fully fenced! Yahoo!

The playground features areas for the little people, and the bigger kids with swings, slides, firemans pole, monkey bars, flying fox, see saw and a cute little pretend ‘shop’ area where the kids made pretend icecreams.
The space also has an undercover electric BBQ area and other shaded picnic areas, it would be a top spot for a birthday party, or Sunday family BBQ (I’d get in early though to grab a spot).
And there is also a nearby tennis court and BMX track, which is ideal for the bigger kids.
If you visit this park, make sure you come armed with lots of outdoor games, because this really is a top spot for balls, bubbles, kites and bikes (at the track)
There is also a big oval across the road so if you need more space for kicking practice you can head over there.
Clean public toilets with disabled access are also available.

Our favourite local:
Joan’s Pantry
A mere 1 minute walk from the park. A great spot to grab a coffee, or pre play breakfast, or post play ice cream!
