Lovely picnic area, love walking over the footbridge to the little island. It does concern me that young kids jump off it into the murky water when a young girl died there doing that several years ago. There is a memorial there but kids and their parents must choose to ignore it sadly. I sincerely hope there are no more fatalities.

Wonderful place. One of my favourite spots in the central coast. Have a swim or a paddle to explore the water around. Go over the bridge and have a walk around the island (7~10 mins casual walk). Well maintained toilet block with a shower outside. Multiple covered areas for groups to gather with bbq facilities. Play area for the kids. This place has it all ?
