Eastern Reserve is two triangle parks either side of Park Street, the Northern side reserved for dogs, whilst the Southern side, for lucky residents, has been redeveloped into a fabulous little playground.

Almost fully fenced, this great park has been beautifully planted out using gorgeous natives, attracting lots of bird life. We saw two rainbow lorikeets frolicking in the red flowering gum until a neighbour’s ginger friend came to say hi and scared them away!

The playground has quality barbeque facilities in a great pergola with tables and chairs. There are the ever important toilets, a basketball square for the older kids and a lawn area for a mini game of cricket. Fun for the littlies include swings, monkey bars, chain bridge, spider climbing net with adjoining slide, quirky cubby house, roundabout and some of those fun spring based rocking bikes. This natural looking park is the perfect spot for a Summer’s BBQ. Get the whole family down there!
