Great park for locals. Love the vibe as opposed to Royal Botanic Gardens which is geared towards tourists.

There are two nice playgrounds for kids and nice duck ponds where there are swans and geese. It is a lovely place for a picnic.

This park is enormous. It is not really close to the CBD but then again within reach (possible even walking distance, if you are a walker). Apparently, this is where the flying foxes fly to around sunset.More

We walked around the expansive park. It has lots of birdlife, with 9 ponds. Also statues dotted around the park, cafes and plenty of toilets. Great place to have a picnic.
