If you have kids, maybe up to 13 years old, make time to come to this place. Open air, plenty of space, nice.. just go, you won't regret coming here. And best of all, it's free..

Fun for everyone! Cold and cloudy today, but still very busy. Great for families of all ages. There is water play also- great for a hot day. Mums and dads will have fun playing or even relaxing on the rope hammocks.
