Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy the rotunda. It’s a versatile spot to eat lunch, ride bikes or scooters or relax with a story time session.

All of that grass surrounding the rotunda means that there’s plenty of room to play soccer, cricket, footy or run relays. The park is full of Norfolk pines and fig trees providing plenty of shade and also great hiding spots for hide and seek.
