Grab a seat next to the football oval or under a tree for your picnic, or take a stroll along our Honeysuckle Creek walk and use one of the available tables there.

The water refill station provides facilities for filling bottles, watering the dog or having a slurp.

Our playground features a wonderful nest swing which several children can ride at one time. With soft fall underneath, there are swings, slides and climbing equipment suitable for a variety of ages.

On Market days, the community wood-fired pizza oven cooks up a storm. Run by Community House volunteers and fuelled by wood from the Community Forest, a variety of home-made pizzas are churned out to feed hungry patrons.
