Great walk around the park, very informative. The kids love the fact that the geese followed us most of the way.

Very nice park landscaped with native trees, signposted & described so you gain an education with a bit of exercise. Water feature with geese, ducks, turtles etc.

The short walk was interesting and a nice change is scenery. When we got to the rain gun and frisbee golf we wished we'd brought our 2 frisbee but had left them in caravan parked out of town.

This is an interesting park to walk around. Not a difficult walk as it is all flat and suitable for wheelchairs, and only takes an hour or so. This park will only improve over time as the native plantings mature.

Enjoy a stroll around this track and read about the various trees planted here from the plaques describing them. Family of geese enjoy this pleasant spot.
