I take my hat of to the council here for the facilities and businesses strategically placed. I enjoyed a great coffee and watched my child with his friend have a great time exploring the magnificent fig tree.

The playground is a decent size, built around a giant fig tree. There is seating and a bbq area right by the trinity beach inlet, and also a cafe closeby. A nice place for a bbq, kids party or a coffee while the kids play

We don't have kids that would use this equipment now, however if we did, I would say it was an excellent place to take them as it is shaded and appeared to have a lot of different activities to do there.

it was sooooo amazing to watch those big bats up on the trees! also, there were plenty of variety of birds. let's hope that tree live long so it could shelter visitors and wild lives. i could get so close to those birds.

Tow whom it may concern, On the day I visited the figtree park area there were dogs there with owners but they were on leads. As I do not own a dog I didnt look out for the plastic bags provided sorry.
