A suburban park that provides a welcome break from the heat of the sun - many shaded park benches from which to enjoy nature and contemplate life

Gardens are laid out and maintained well. Grab a spot by the lake and watch the birds after wandering around admiring the floral displays.

Love the revamped kids park, has great facilities and is fenced for the little ones. Kids can bring their scooters and push bikes and ride around the many pathways. Lovely trees and water features.
