A wonderful family outing. We thought our grandchildren (11 yr old and 8 yr old) may have been too old for the children’s playground. We were wrong because they were well catered for at both the playgrounds ( flying fox a special treat). We had a lunch picnic near one playground and an afternoon tea picnic near the other. Plenty of shady picnic “ spots”. We still miss the riverside cafe that was burnt down. It appears to be being built as a reception centre?? We also miss the convenience of the toilets attached to the former cafe- they were locked. The toilets in the park weren’t as well maintained. The pop up cafe is underwhelming. The Gate House tea rooms are lovely but not always what a family is looking for. I feel a coffee cart and ice- cream stand would do well. Weekends are the best time to visit because parking restrictions are more relaxed.…

Beautiful park - open spaces, play equipment, bike and walking tracks, historic buildings, ducks on river and cafes - walk from station and rivercat. Plenty of parking. What more could you want?

Very nice park, especially down by the river with lots of trees and birds. Plenty of lawns and ovals and playgrounds elsewhere, although they've built a road through the middle so you're never far from traffic.

I Love this place particularly because we took our wedding photos there. I have a special memory there. A great place for a walk and festivals.

When you do the full circuit walk you come to some very different types of things in different zones. 1. has an excellent kids playground area. 2. Rolling hills for a harder workout 3. Has Heritage listed buildings, history and charm. 4. Can do high tea here. 5. Popular with walkers, runners and cyclists doing the loop 6. there is an area with bats. 7. views to a steam with water birds and a river 8. Nice Cricket ground areas and concert areas. Many great picnic spots.…
