Do you have a fur baby in your family? Our chocolate Labrador Archer doesn’t get as many walks or as much attention as he used to pre-kids. That’s why we LOVE Unity park because it has a dog park for the dogs and a playground for the kids. Both are fully fenced (so you don’t need to worry about toddlers running away) and it’s the perfect whole family outing – dad with the dog and mum with the kids (or vice versa). Just make sure you don’t take your dog into the kids playground area.

Sheltered picnic tables are within the playground area, and there’s a BBQ just outside the fence. The kids can enjoy plenty of equipment and space to move, and so much lush green grass to run around on or have a picnic. You’ll also find a lake and ducks to feed, and it’s a great bike riding spot.

This is definitely a park we’ll be visiting more often to make sure our 5 year dog and 3 year old daughter get a chance to expel their energy!
