As pretty as any botanic garden I've been to

The variety and beauty of this well manicured park was surprising to us. We were visited by a number of curious birds and really enjoyed the rose garden.

Plenty of space for kids of all ages to exercise and burn off some boredom energy. Good facilities, toilets, water fountains, council BBQ for public use. Safe, ducks to feed, ambling creak, stroll round some paths or gardens. Less than 1 km off State Highway 1. Sheaper than stopping at a coffee shop with a family...

The park was surrounded by outdoor fitness equipment and the spring fed creek/river was crystal clear and filled with bird life which out litttle one enjoyed. Beautiful quiet... More

Lovely place to wander after dinner in summer. Mature trees, well maintained paths and cool in the evening heat.

A must to visit with the kids and a loaf of bread for the ducks. Beautiful gardens and spring fed river meandering through giant trees....

Visit regularly with my grand daughter. She loves the playgrounds and what activities they offer. We have fun on the activities surrounding the park - challenging our skills. The river and ducks always at their best as are the gardens. A must for families to visit and enjoy some time out

Nice park. Runs alongside a golf course though which seems to take up most of the park. I was looking for somewhere quiet to go to read a book in the sun but it was way too busy - too many young families everywhere.
