Very well maintained park with good cafe, Interesting steam roller and other industrial artifacts. The small lake has much photographed fountains. The park also offers good views of the harbour, cruise ships and coast.

Not a big park but views are good from the top. Small lake with swans and park is undulating which gives different perspectives. Lots of plants too. Resent the fact you need to pay 50 cents for toilets though,

This is a beautiful park to walk through or sit and relax by the large pond. There is a small pop up cafe that has great views over the harbour and serves delicious home made lemonade.

The planting in this park used to be very pretty but I looked very dull and shrubby when we visited in December 2018. There is a nice little cafe. The best part of the planting is alongside the stepped access to the promenade road.
