  • It is a useful park with playing fields, shaded paths, playgrounds, and some fencing to separate off-leash dogs from children. There are also picnic tables, BBQs and seats.

  • Fabulous park for those with young kids and a dog to exercise. Two playgrounds with toilet facilities and water fountains, large green spaces (2 ovals) to exercise the pooch. For older kids there's also a skate park on the other side of a very pretty lake. If dog owners were more vigilant about picking up after their pets the green space would make a nice sports space as the grass is very well kept. I think there were bbq and covered picnic spaces as well.
  • Amazing Huge open grass area, that is Great for Dogs. Quaint little ponds to admire the water life. Enclosed playground on one side, and open playground on the other. Great Skate park. This place has it All. (Only 1 toilet tho) It's a worthy addition to any visit to Elwood. *8vD
  • Beautiful green park and one of the best off leash dog parks in the area! There's a few sports areas and a pleasant lake to walk around. It's quite busy during certain times, but the park is expansive so there's plenty of space. Brilliant park to take your dog, with lots of dogs to socialise and plenty of space to run around. Two gated children's playgrounds at each side of the park, wth plenty of benches and a toilet block.
  • Beautiful luscious Green Park. Quite big for a good run around and play a sport or with the dog. Dog friendly with poop bags around but didn't see any water bowls. Nice lake and a couple of kids playgrounds around.
  • Lovely lake and ovals, with bike / pedestrian paths going all around it. Lots of happy dogs and apparently there are even turtles in the lake.
