This is a good place to go for a quiet picnic. There are lots of birds, peacocks wandering around the park. It is also a great place to walk around for exercise if staying in a nearby hotel if on holidays

In the middle of Surferers/main beach is this family park complete with walks, birdlife including pea cocks, BBQ facilities and play areas. A pleasant green oasis in the built up beach area.
