Really impressed with this public park. Great playground with water play, flying foxes and big slides. Well shaded and spread out. A fantastic animal enclosure with wallabies, kangaroos, dingo, wombat etc., all free to the public and very well maintained. Well done Ipswich City Council

A great spot to entertain the little ones. Nice walking tracks, Australian animals to find and a large playground. There's also a cafe if you feel like a coffee.

Possibly one of the best parks in Qld. A great place to visit in the school holidays. We visited with grandchildren aged 4 and 6. A wonderful variety of play equipment as well as water play.

Heaps to do. Enough for a whole day, take a picnic or bbq ingredients! The animal park is great, the Japanese gardens okay, the play ground brilliant and the "Knoll" - sort of a pyramid is weird and worth looking for.
