“Kids Loved It, We Had to Drag Them Away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Great water feature that the kids have great fun diverting and building sand castles with. Excellent play ground with about the only thing that could be added is a zip line. Excellent picnic/bbq amenities and well maintained toilets. Plenty of parking, lovely outlook and not busy. Right on the main strip with supermarket across the road and plenty of food and cafe shops within short walk.

“World class Park - worth the drive - your kids will love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

My childrens favorite park - designed for young and old, with so many activities within. Bring a picnic lunch or buy some prize winning sausages from the butcher over the road and throw on the provided BBQ's. For older children they have a large concrete skate park at the back, ideal for scooters, boards and bikes, plenty of swings and climbing adventure playground for the younger ones. The building of this park was funded by an overseas company after the devastating Victorian bushfires of 2009 for the enjoyment of the local and outer communities. A fitting memorial will soon be built in memory of those that the community lost in these fires, within the park.
Yarra Glen is a great little town worth a stroll to the bakeries and gift shops, and further drive to the nearby World class Chocolaterie!
