  • The park (including the botanic garden) is quite big and offers a variety of sports fields. In addition to that there are some pull up bars, parallel bars and monkey ladders for a good outdoor workout...  more »

  • Fantastic open space. Cycling, walking or playing your favourite outdoor sport. Especially on a beautiful sunny day in Autumn or spring. Deans ave side in spring is magnificent with blossoms in full flower.
  • Nice been public space. Large area which has a lot of events. Has a golf course on our as well which I think detracts from it a bit. Has the botanic gardens which are very nice. Cool ducks
  • This is the gorgeous place where I never been to so far since i was born. From the park, we have lots of memorial things. I could say this is a huge playground where give massive refreshment and enjoyment to us.
  • Beautiful park, seems like there is always lots going on and plenty to see and do. In our limited time there we loved it very much.
  • Great for walks and getting fresh air. Great for Pokemon too 😂
