  • We had a ball of a time taking our toddler here. From the enclosed toddler area, complete with its own little bike track. That even has ripples in the road to make things "interesting". Then out to the little man made creek. Let him splash around, throw some leaves in and watch them float away. Was great fun to watch. And. Eat part is, it's shaded.
  • Great for every age group, from big kids to little kids. Gated playground for toddlers is a god sent. Bigger playground and flying fox is great for the older kids and the water play is always very popular in summer. Lots of tracks for bikes and big areas to kick a ball. Water park can be over crowded some days and its hard to get a gazebo on weekends. Moderate parking.
  • Great for families to relax and enjoy. Lots of shaded areas to put down your picnic blanket have some food watch the kids burn off some energy and cool off in the water play areas. I wish that it had a kiosk for parents to grab a coffee and the kids an ice cream. Still an enjoyable place regardless.
  • Great spot for a picnic, party, walk, trail walk. It's always beautiful and green the ground keepers do a great job in keeping this place looking great and neat. There are kids playground a fort, climbing pyramid and a small water park. There's two large ovals to play which ever games or sports you want. And theres a path along the river which is quite peaceful considering how close it is to the city!
  • An absolutely beautiful. Lawns are very well tended. Great spot for a family gathering. Thank you very much.
