My two grandchildren of 3 and three quarters and 18 months loved this playground. The eldest loved the pirate ship the most especially climbing up tto the crows nest. The only problem is it's very difficult to keep track of them due to the size if the place.

The park is beautiful and there's plenty to keep the children busy. It's a shame it's so busy. We visited and there was no queue, I wouldn't like to think how busy it gets when you have to queue. There was literally no space to sit, every last bit of grass was taken. We only stayed 20 minutes, we left... More

Clean, free entrance and nicely laid out....just very busy in summer holidays. On our visit all children had fun time for about an hour or so. Be warned school groups with 30-60 children use it too though..... So large flux of children who know each other well etc!

This is a beautiful park. It has a Peter Pan theme. There are many areas with various playgrounds. There is a giant pirate ship, sand, a water feature, music areas, wigwams, little log houses, etc. The park is well landscaped and very fragrant. It's a good place for the kids to be kids when their overwhelmed with sight seeing.

We arrived here after a 28 hour flight from Melbourne, and it was an excellent place to keep the kids occupied and to let them burn some energy while us adults lay on the grass trying to keep our eyes open after the long flight! We were there in late May, so there werent many kids around and they were... More

I don't really know how else to express how ridiculous this is. I know that this woman was concerned with children's issues (among other things), but couldn't they handsomely with a better name ... Tribute Playground, Living Playground, check, even the Playground Honoring Diana Princess of Wales would have been better. I couldn't even imagine explaining to my my grandchildren... More

I honestly left this playground thinking that if every child had access to this type of space then the world would be a better place. I'm not kidding. I've started working a project to help bring this about. See?! It was life changing. Go. Have fun!

Play area is well maintained and very safe for the children. On site cafe is very good with a selection of hot and cold food/ snacks. One tip... More

We spent a lovely afternoon here with a 3 year old and a baby. The playground has a great feel to it, very relaxing, toilets close by, and it felt very secure too. The play equipment was a real hit with my 3 year old as was the 'stream' running through it. Something for everyone although bring your wallet for... More
