  • Beautiful park with plenty to see and do. Free toilets and a nice cafe in the same block. Affordable car parking and a great play area. Personal highlights are the view point next to the carved statue of Mr. Wharton himself and the community garden area where they even have home grown plants you can take away after a donation. Lovely at all times of the year.
  • Had passed alot of times and thought it was a housing estate.however we decided to drive up and see it. What a surprise a hidden gem we never knew was there.will definitely be taking our grandson very soon
