Percy's Park

Percy’s Adventure Park has a few activities for kids of all ages, including a fantastic flying fox, a separate area for younger kids, picnic tables and a half basketball court.

The flying fox is a big drawcard, and it’s worth a look if you are in the area.  There are also picnic tables and a BBQ.
