If you like your parks to have a little bit of everything, Jo Gapper Activity Park in Hillbank is definitely worth a look! There’s even a designated area for your fur baby!

There’s a playground, basketball court, tennis court, footy field, walking trail and lookout AND a dog park!

Unfortunately the playground itself isn’t shaded, but there are two shaded picnic/BBQ areas right next to it so you can escape the sun if needed
