Great playground for kids - they enjoyed running around and having fun. My only concern was the kids could easily run around the playground and come out at a completely different area which made it hard for me to keep a good eye on them and feel they were safe.

This playground is built around the figtrees and has an amazing tropical feel to it. Kids can wind around the trees and the boardwalks in this unique playground.

It is good for and hour or so. Lots of area to use unspent energy. Nicely done. The wharf I close and there are some small shops around too.

There's not a huge range of equipment at this playground but our kids had an hour there and loved it. It's charming how a lot of the structure is built around the roots of a huge fig (?) tree.

We walked by the playground while strolling through the park. There were a lot of parents with young children here. They were all having fun! It's a very nice playground.

Lucky find, the kids really had a lovely time (8 yrs & 10 yrs), such a novelty. Mum and Dad enjoyed it too with lots of shade, seating and a cool breeze it was a nice place to hang out.

Nice place to have a picnic with kids. Close to wharf so they can see big ships in dock and look for fish and great treehouse.
