“Could have stayed all day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

This was a halfway point to meet up with family from Melbourne. Travelling from Bendigo myself only took approx 50 minutes. We had 6 children between us and the equipment here suited all ages, including the adults! Kept us entertained for hours and was left feeling worn out from playing before we had even tried all the equipment. Will definitely making this a more frequent meeting point with our Melbourne family!

“Simply Awesome Kids Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Built by locals on the creek bank in the centre of town, this park really does have it all!

Free BBQ under pavilions and within metres of safe modern play equipment. Toddlers have fenced secure area whilst bigger kids have a so much but boys especially love the flying fox. Climbing frame, swings, slides, sand pit, lawn for cricket or footy, downed tree trunks to explore, and even musical equipment like drums, chimes and bells - you have been warned!

Brings some food and enjoy the shaded seating. The creek is safe to explore unless in flood and toilets only 50m on the other side via pedestrian bridge. Plenty of parking and within 150m of shops and cafes for coffee and food. there is Coles for BBQ snags but please consider the local butcher Black Forest Meats who makes great gourmet sausages and open till 1pm Saturday.

The worst thing is getting the kids to leave.

“YOU MUST GO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

What a brilliant purpose built park!

All BBQ's are free as they are on natural gas.

There are two large play areas, one fenced in for the younger kids and then a larger open area for the bigger kids. Even the adults can have a go on the flying fox.

We had our son's birthday party here and it was great. There is so much for the kids to see and play on. There is 3 big undercover BBQ areas, toilets are just across the bridge, there's walking tracks and it's really close to town, so if you need, it is only a quick walke to the supermarket if you need or jump over to the fish n' chips shop for a quick lunch in the park.

Best thing is there is also a grass area to put a blanket down and have a picnic.

If you get a chance, go to the park for Halloween. The local rotary club put on a free BBQ and hand out lollies to the kids, and the park is filled with people dressed up, young and old.

“Great place for children and families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Expanded grounds enables many family groups to use the area at the same time. Secure (fenced) playground for toddlers and large and varied playground and equipment for others. There's shade and BBQ facilities, paved paths great for kids to ride bikes and scooters. Whilst there's no toilets in the grounds, there are public toilets just up the street and many cafes across the road for buying food and drinks.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Great fun for the kids in beautiful surroundings. Extensive playground that is good for all ages and close to shops so you can grab stuff for a picnic or award winning treats from the local bakery.
