I was amazed to find QE Park so close to home. It is absolutely fantastic to have a hiking, picnicing and all time chilling spot right on my doorstep. There's braai facilities, nature trails and nice playspots for the kids. Amazing Birds and butterflies too!

Sorrounded by large trees and lots of wide open spaces. Small but, has many nooks and crannies for wonderful family picnics. Have been visiting the park when I was little with my parents and now still visit regularly with my wife and daughters.
