It’s a heritage listed park, also known as Anzac Memorial Park.

As you enter the park you will see lush green areas everywhere around you with a playground guaranteed to offer lots of activities for kids and families. It has the capacity to keep your kids occupied for hours. This means you can go there with your friends and do picnic while your kids play in the Kalinga park playground.

The timber forts, which resemble trees houses, are adorned with many opportunities to climb (think nets, poles, bars, ladders, steps and climbing wall). If you wish to turn the day into sport day then feel free to play football on the ground area. Feel like walking or jogging, then plenty of walks there.
