Great park for families and kids gathering and out door activities, especially cycling and walking. A bit far from the city centre.

A nice local park to pass a pleasant hour... Good clean green space with some seats to have a picnic, with sports facilities too.

Try out the long slide built into the hillside, the various play areas, sports fields, skate park or box track. There is also a large sanding which is usually very well maintained.

I visit this park nearly every single day walking the dog. It's a fantastic open space. Lots of room for games, sport, walking, dog exercising & picnics. There aren't any public facilities aside from some lavatories. Recommend you grab the family, grab some water and...More

I hadn't appreciated how old Western Park was until I saw a plaque saying it was opened in 1899. I've been coming to the park for a long time first as a child myself and with my own children. More recently I've been here taking...More
