About the Park

Play Park

A lovey safe, fenced off childrens play park including a slide, swings, roundabout, climbing frame and other play equipment 

Trim Trail

Right in the centre of the park you will find the Trim Trail which includes climbing equipment, tyre swing, cable rider and climbing wall. 


There are two beautiful lakes, the first is to the south and around 7 acres with a wildlife island, then a smaller 0.6 acre lake in the north of the park called Jug Dam.  Jug Dam has a regular Heron visitor. 


Two very special monuments can be found in the park.  The first is a granite obelisk incorporating a drinking fountain was erected as a memorial to Harold Gathorne Hardy.   A second monument was erected in 1902 in  memory of  the late Lieut. Frank W Milligan. 

Keeping it clean

We do pride ourselves on keeping a clean park and that is mostly due to the hard work of two of the youngest group volunteers.  If you see them say Hello.
