  • It is a feeling that the slope on the north side of the town is greened and made it to the park. It's quite sloped, and it might be a little dangerous for young children to play. There are benches, and I think it's a good place to take a break in the shade of the trees while looking at the town.

  • A steep little park, this was reopened a few years ago as a sculpture park. There are stairs or a path to walk on. It is quite steep, so walking down is a lot better than going up.  more »

  • Like to run stairs? Jacobs ladder can be a great cardio hit. Really nice place to sit n have lunch or relax n read a book. Take a friend or 2 and run the stairs. Take a blanket and have a picnic. Lots of shade for those hot summer days. Handy to central train station.
  • At twilight you can see possums and bats in the trees, which might be a novelty if you are an overseas visitor. But be careful, today I saw syringes on the footpath. The free with fi service is sparatic, doesn't always connect. Perhaps it would be more interesting.if they let native animals roam around. Have bird feedings, parakeets lorikeets and rosellas. Turquoise birds and exotic species. The public art needs up dating. I was told at art school it should be replaced every ten years, a sign of prosperity in the community.
