“YOU MUST GO”
Reviewed January 7, 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”
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!”
Reviewed October 7, 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.

This is a great park and it's got a natural feel - it's so well designed. All kids love it and constantly want to go back.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Literally...didn't see the small street sign and had to ask at the visitor info centre.

Great equipment for little ones in an enclosed area, great for the kids and even teenagers with the giant flying fox (about 30m).

Had 2 main BBQ areas and some seating.

Didn't notice any toilets on the grounds (we may have missed them, not sure) but there are some at the visitor centre across the road - about 150m walk away.
