  • Beautiful gardens and creek. Awesome playground to keep the children entertained as well. Bring some bread for feeding the ducks!
  • Swear place to take your little one. Great playground with equipment for younger and older kids. There is a cute stream full of ducks as well.
  • Love this place great for the kids
  • Always a pleasure to visit with ever changing gardens
  • Its a lovely rose garden & flower beds set around a river & pond that emptys out to the Taylor. A secure play ground, picnic area & new toilet facilties are just at the main vehicle parking area. Further over are the tennis courts, croquet & petonque areas with the golf & race course on the northern side...all together a fab place to wander, lunch & enjoy !.
