Ripping fun for the kids... Particularly the rock climbing wall + slide. Easy to lose children on a busy day though...
Really great park with a lot of open space. There are playground equipment and a massive water feature. There are nice cafes and food places nearby. If you find yourself here and you have kids, dont miss it.
