Parking is less than before. Increased bbqs and seating which is good. No swings etc for the older kids only the little kids. Big slide and climbing ropes for the children. Big disappointment for my grand daughter.

Food was great, entertainment was fantastic especially for the kids. Really enjoyed the day. Will go back for a casual lunch with the family. The grounds were nicely set out. Great for a quick coffee with friends as well.
