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.
