Suitable for all ages
Something for everyone at this park – 2 playgrounds (including slides coming out of a rocket ship!), mini putt (see under ‘contacts’ for more details), outdoor pools in the summer months and a miniature train. There are also BBQs, lots of grass for running around on and big old trees providing shelter for a picnic.
The train operates year round – weather permitting with petrol, diesel and even mini steam trains running on different weekends. There’s more than one circuit but all have at least one tunnel. Great for train enthusiasts young and old! Check here for more train info.
The pool is only open in the summer months and has a learners’ pool and lap pool. See under ‘contact info’ for more details or here for the pools’ own website.
