There is so much to see and do at Poolgarla Family Area. Best suited for children under five, Ivey Watson Playground is wonderful for imaginative play, with children able to captain a pirate ship, be crowned a fairy princess and make buddies with the friendly critters.  

Poolgarla Parkland provides the perfect spot for older siblings to hang out at the space net play ball sports and use the 'learn to ride' cycle path.
