and in more humble localities these places are often better known as Parks. It's a nice park, as suburban parks go, there's no denying that. There's a big lawn area, good for kicking a footy or pitching a ball. There's a duck pond which thankfully is mainly fenced or at least has fenestrating plants around it to discourage adventurous duck feeding, eel watching toddlers from falling into it by accident. There are a few bunches of trees. There's an off leash area for dogs. There's a boardwalk bit around the river, a biggish children's playground, a few barbeques, and a good sized car park to cater for the many families who visit this park on weekends. It is a favourite spot locally for primary school age birthday parties. What it lacks and sadly needs is a cafe. The concept for this park was developed back in the day when mothers stayed home and did nothing but domestic duties and had time to prepare picnics and beverages whenever they took their children out. Times have moved on but the park is in the grip of a 1950s timewarp. It is sad because this and many other lovely green areas managed by Brisbane City council would provide considerably greater community benefit with the addition of a cafe/kiosk or the like to encourage families out into the fresh air without needing to make it an expedition.
