A nice small park while I found the only interesting thing was the preserved old paddle steamer "the Maid of Sker". It's well kept and clean and tidy, but you may have to fight off some of the fitness fanatics.Plenty of off street parking.

This park is part of the heart and soul of the Gold Coast and worthy of our best efforts to keep it maintained, especially the Maid of Sker, Australia's oldest remaining paddlesteamer. Wonderful trees, amazing facilities, central, big and bushy, a great family park.
