  • We came and spent a couple of hours here before heading home. My son instantly made friends with kids here and had a great time. So much to climb up, climb down and touch for younger ones and older on...  more »
  • The view of Lover's Harbour is very comfortable - enjoy the view outdoors for lunch, but be careful a lot of sea breezes to get close to the food you fall down. They are very unfriendly. The Children's Park (Darling Quarter) is available for young to middle-aged children to play together, and local students are safe. There are also very chair places for people to rest.

  • GOOD KIDS PLAY AREA. Toilet facilities not good,no sign to direct to amenities. High people traffic area. Best to go very early or much later a specially in school holidays. I think some umbrella shade would be good. Trees are beautiful but are small at present and afford little shade.
  • Amazing place to bring out the kids to have fun. The renovations have made more playground and equipment accessible to children. There's entry of water features that they can interact with and plenty of seating for families.
