Riverside Park with Electric BBQ
4.0 of 5 bubblesFeb 2022
This small park runs alongside the Myall River in Tea Gardens and has an expansive outlook across the water, towards Singing Bridge. Created as a memorial space to commemorate the war time sacrifices of those who have served overseas, the park is the focus of Anzac Day remembrances each year. It is also a community space. Farmers’ Markets are sometimes held here and there are BBQ and picnic facilities. In particular there is an electric BBQ, toilets and a covered picnic table space. There’s no playground for kids but there is a small patch of sand along the riverside which can keep kids entertained. There are prettier spots to sit, further along the river but this is the only one as far as I know with a public BBQ available. A large mural at the far end of the park attempts to capture the Anzac spirit with symbolic images and the words ‘Lest We Forget’ but what really catches your eye most of all, is the original M2A2 Howitzer Gun. These guns were first used by the Australian Army during the Vietnam War and played a significant role at the Tet Offensive. It was installed in the park in 2015. Beside the gun, you’ll also see a formal memorial structure consisting of 3 plain walls around a central flagpole. Park benches surround the memorial and plaques have been added to each seat to commemorate individual veterans. In addition, a pine tree has been planted to remember the appalling losses at the WWI Battle of Lone Pine. On a single day on 6th Aug, 1915, Australia suffered 3500 casualties and won 7 Victoria Crosses. What is most poignant about this tree, is that it was propagated from the original ‘lone pine’ that stood in Turkey at the battlefield. There is plenty of free street parking along the front of the park.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
