  • Great place to for some quite time in the grass or wooded area, or to entertain the children in the sand pit of adventure! There is a cafe run by volunteers, who work tirelessly to ensure the cafe runs and the surrounding area is safe, clean and pretty. Well worth a visit
  • Great local fun place to bring the kids. Especially on a sunny day. Tempting to let them run around barefoot but would recommend keep shoes on as bits of glass and other sharp objects have been found in the sand before. I've heard there's supposed to be a splash pool, not sure if it's still there as I haven't seen it myself
