I take my hat of to the council here for the facilities and businesses strategically placed. I enjoyed a great coffee and watched my child with his friend have a great time exploring the magnificent fig tree.

The playground is a decent size, built around a giant fig tree. There is seating and a bbq area right by the trinity beach inlet, and also a cafe closeby. A nice place for a bbq, kids party or a coffee while the kids play

We don't have kids that would use this equipment now, however if we did, I would say it was an excellent place to take them as it is shaded and appeared to have a lot of different activities to do there.

Good for sunny day - big trees will give you a shelter and it is amazing to watch big bats and birds - pure nature in the city!

it was sooooo amazing to watch those big bats up on the trees! also, there were plenty of variety of birds. let's hope that tree live long so it could shelter visitors and wild lives. i could get so close to those birds.

This is so cool for the kids and adults alike. Walk through the tree on a board walk or let the kids climb and play. I love how there is a cafe right their to enjoy a bite to eat and a coffee

This is a very nice, shady play area best suited to the under 10's. There's a large climbing treehouse and all the usual adventure playground stuff guaranteed to wear out your littlies. And about 20 steps away is your cafe / light meals stop, right...More

Love the fig trees, they are perfect for the kids to climb in, find a limb and hangout. Combine this with the play equipment and beautiful views WINNING.

Tow whom it may concern, On the day I visited the figtree park area there were dogs there with owners but they were on leads. As I do not own a dog I didnt look out for the plastic bags provided sorry.
