Always great to walk through the park on a sunny day and the views are stunning. The area is always very well maintained and the centre garden is always a talking piece.

I always enjoy a walk through this old style park with magnificent coastal views. Stop at the old rotunda to bring back memories of childhood visits to this green space.

Close to the City centre is the beautiful King Edward Park. It's a lovely place to have a picnic or just go for a walk. The Bogey Hole is a great place to swim.

This park is where we always take visiting friends and family, and it never fails to impress. Add that it's walking distance from the CBD and from 3 or 4 city beaches, just shows how lucky we are to have this park.

It's the playground for Novacastrians and tourists alike . There are vast expanses of lawns with old trees for shady picnics or ball games. Big grassed hills to run or slide down. A formal garden with views over the ocean. A pretty rotunda where wedding...More
