Macintosh Island Park offers opportunities for exploration, imaginative play, physical activity and idyllic relaxation.
The most striking feature of this park is a large rock structure labelled as "“Big Foot’s Cave." As expected, a statue of a large man with giant feet can be observed in an opening of the rock face. Children can easily climb into this cave and explore. Make sure to have your phone or camera on hand, to capture photographs of your children posing inside the cave or climbing over the surrounding boulders. The rear of this structure boasts a stunning waterfall and bridge - providing further inspiration for imaginative exploration and photography opportunities.
Another exciting feature of Macintosh Island is a fenced peacock enclosure. Children will be delighted to see these magnificent creatures up close. Many often leave the confines of the enclosure and wander throughout the grounds. A large fenced lagoon provides homes for turtles and many other species of water birds.
The playground is quite small but is well-maintained with shade sails. Trickling streams and cycle paths extend throughout the parklands.
Facilities include two toilet blocks, water refill station, BBQs, sheltered picnic areas and carpark.
