Enjoyed walking through the park to the botanic gardens one lunchtime. Very relaxing and easy walk. Lovely grounds with lots of birds. There was plenty of shade which was nice on a hot day. The zoo is at one end of the park.

Nice, open parklands with a great collection of trees. Plenty of space for play, ball games or picnic spots. Leads to the Botanic Gardens which are also well worth seeing.

The Park and Gardens are very well kept and a credit to the staff who work there. Pity the council has introduced paid parking (it has been a while since we visited from interstate). $4 for approx 1 hr 5 minutes.

So the living specimens here are genuinely surprising for the Desert climate. Be sure to visit the glass house, and the seed collection - fascinating to see botany through the eyes of the early settlers.
