Points of Interest

1. Playground

Let your child run free in this well designed playground. There is a range of different equipment for climbing, swinging and exploring. Includes a swing with harness and double-width slide.

2. Bird hide and billabong

This bird hide is the perfect spot to have a look at who might be nestling or feeding in the water. You might like to have a look at the tree farm near the billabong to see what's growing there too.

3. BBQ, seats and shade

This is the perfect spot for a picnic, BBQ and to refill your water bottle.

4. Beautiful gum trees

There are many beautiful gum trees lining the side of the ovals and creek. A shady spot and a great reminder of how the looked before it was colonised.

5. Don't feed the birds

Contrary to popular opinion, it's not healthy for ducks and birds to eat bread. This can lead to poor health, loss of hunting and foraging skills, and dependence on humans. See link below.

6. Archery Club

Stay away from the archery paddock is archers are in action! Obviously, don't cough or sneeze too close to them either, in case ....

7. Dog training

Furry friends of all colours and sizes are often seen in the park. It's a popular spot for dog walkers.

8. Under the bridge art

Clearly, the artist feels an affinity with the furry creatures that frequent the area.

9. Glass Creek revegetation works

A beautiful array of indigenous plant seedlings were recently been planted. These include River Red gums, native grasses and bottlebrushes. This area should look spectacular in a few years.

10. End of path

The path ends rather abruptly at the road. Council have painted a section here but there is no footpath. You can continue on here carefully, or take the long and scenic route back the way you came.
