  • Great place to walk the dogs. Very social for the dogs and their owners.
  • What's not to love? Huge Park in the middle of the city. Horse and bike riding, walking and running. Lakes and wildlife right at your picnic blanket.
  • Very large park with cafes, toilets, sports pitches, horse riding lanes, picnic benches, public BBQs and children's playgrounds. Gravel, Sand and tarmac paths throughout. Although this is a huge park, it can sometimes feel a little bit busy and chlostrophobic because you have the roads running through it and lots of cyclists Racing around. Great for group events and runners/cyclists who want to train but I would say go to Botanical gardens for Romance and Tranquility.
  • Come at sunset for a spectacular show of flying foxes.
  • Loads of space for larger groups to have great BBQs or picnics.
