The unique feel of Hays Paddock makes it a great choice for barbecues and social gatherings.
The park offers tables and chairs in a bushland setting thick with shady trees.
The popular all-abilities playground is designed to enable all children to play together. The kids will also love the basketball half-court.
You can book a grass area in the park for your exclusive use.
