Run, ride, walk or just sit and enjoy the views. Playground area for the kids. Plenty of space to picnic and play. Within walking distance for the city centre.

There are a few favourite hidden gems here. The castle is a concrete bunker with tunnels for children to play in and a favourite spot. There is the bamboo maze and the creek crossings. Plenty of grassed areas. The spot for stage 88 and so...More
