Have A Picnic In A Quiet Little Park

Close to the playground, there’s a covered picnic area / pagoda that’s just perfect for lunch in the park with the kids or a couple of friends. There’s also plenty of shade on the hill and a handful of park benches around the park.

And There’s Off Leash Dog Walking Too

The eastern end of the park is off leash for dogs, with plenty of space for the pup to run around and a tap and bowl to keep them hydrated. Dog bags on site but sometimes it is empty so bring back ups. With the playground at the westem end of the park it’s best to keep them on Ieash and clear of the equipment.
