There’s climbing nets, a four kid see-saw, swing set (baby/toddler, regular and nest swings) metal mound slide, balancing logs, ropes obstacle course, plus a water play pumping station and creek bed.
Please note Mums and Dads you need to be extra vigilant with little runners or kids who like to wander off and explore, the playground is quite close to the beach area with no fencing to the water.
Barbecue facilities and sheltered picnic tables are available to use, there’s also plenty of open grass areas for ball sports, outdoor activities and picnics.
