The playground has a couple of climbing walls here, a climbing net, monkey bars and a high slide plus a couple of small swings. There are some higher swings at the other end of the park in the old playground.
There is a small walking and bike track around the park, and a lovely lake that sometimes has ducks in it, though for toddlers, it is of course a water hazard to be aware of.
