The May Drive Parkland (formerly Synergy Parkland) is a recreation area for the entire family, on the western side of Kings Park and easily accessed via Saw Avenue or Poole Avenue. The playground is particularly suitable for children over six years with a 75-m long elevated walkway, island fort, large-scale replicas of extinct Australian mega fauna and an interactive water misting forest.

Zamia Cafe offers wonderful food, coffee and service in a unique setting in the May Drive Parkland, surrounded by the Backyard Botanicals demonstration garden. The Bovell Kiosk is also on site and opens during busy times for visitor convenience.

Manicured lawns and free electric barbecues make it an ideal picnic venue and evening outdoor cinema provides a popular attraction during summer. A number of hire venues are available for group bookings.
