 Locals know this as 'Rocket Park' as it's obvious when you land at this playground, it's all about the rocket ship!

If you're not 'blasting' off there's slides, swings, climbing frame, horsey merry-go-round, twirly bucket seats and a metal bike to keep the kiddos ammused.

The only down-side here is it's completely unshaded. Sad Face.

After all that playing, run off some more steam in the gardens and throw down a picnic. It's a winner all round.
