Plenty of parking nice and close. It is also very close to many of the accommodations available here. Swings, exercise equipment, walk to the beach. Plenty of area to play cricket or kick a ball around. Great for the family.

Good place to take the family for a picnic/bbq. BBQs were fairly clean and there is plenty of seating near the playground. They also run markets here occasionally.

If you've got kids and want to enjoy some chilled parent-time-out, take the kids to Ford Park Playground and let them have fun in the play area or perhaps grab some BBQ treats and use one of the barbeques.

We have a 15 month old boy and walked to Fishpen. We found this park and he absolutely loved it! The best was the hard plastic swings that are very comfy and were very safe. He had a ball on them! I can see someone...More
