We visited on a rather bleak day but still enjoyed the trek and the admiring the ‘Time Beacon' sculpture by Cameron Robbins.
The park's wetlands are a habitat for birds and wildlife and if you look and listen carefully you'll see water birds flying and hear frogs croaking.
While there's no playground at the park there is a lot of space to run! So bring a kite, frisbee, ball or outdoor sport set or just enjoy riding or running up and down the rolling hills. Bring your own picnic or barbecue supplies and enjoy the serenity.
