Tumbalong Park Reviews
On a sunny Saturday, this big park was full of lovers of outdoor life enjoying their walks, the fountains, the green space, some buskers and lots of places to eat on the periphery. more »
We found this park by complete accident. But wow it’s truely amazing. So we took our 3 year old there and she was very excited to see a kids park with water play. Shame we didn’t have togs or a towel ... more »
Ripping fun for the kids... Particularly the rock climbing wall + slide. Easy to lose children on a busy day though...
Really great park with a lot of open space. There are playground equipment and a massive water feature. There are nice cafes and food places nearby. If you find yourself here and you have kids, dont miss it.
