Lovely place to take the grandkids for a picnic brunch/lunch. Lots of activities to keep the kids amused, plus exploring the jetty area is an added thrill for the kids.

Wow just wow! Windy day but this spot was protected. Water was clear, didn’t look like a river. Amazing swans and birdlife. So picturesque! Looking forward to going again.

Great weather for this year's concert. Kids enjoyed it, but bouncy castle was a bit too rough. Good display of fireworks. Wish there were more food trucks.

This place is a lovely spot for a picnic or to hang out outdoors. There is ample outdoor space to spend some time in the sunshine. It's also great for a run or a jog.
