An impressive toddler/junior adventure play park ensures lots of fun for the children as do all the large tree trunks lying around to be climbed on. The playground now includes wheelchair access and fencing for child safety and an exeloo toilet has been installed.

Large open kick/play spaces, and a basketball court keep the balls rolling around.  Multiple barbeque and picnic settings, some in log cabins, are on hand for your use. The Reserve extends across Shakespeare Avenue to a naturally grassed area that follows Third Creek, providing a pleasant nature walk. In all there are over 800m of walking paths.

The reserve is open all hours.
