Great playground for the younger kids and heaps of room for the older. Easy for big groups and there is a rotunda for protection from the weather

One of three parks in walking distance from my house. This one is my favourite. It is such a great local green space for all of the community.

A source of water for the Moonee Ponds Creek, this park has ponds, where I used to catch yabbies when I was a child. My fascination with the park continues. There are playgrounds for the children, and plenty of space for picnicking and running around....More
