(Incorporating Galaxy Land Playground)
Accessible via Betula Terrace and Watersprite Boulevard in Sunbury, Jacksons Park is a fantastic family friendly park. With a very large play area for children, Barbecue’s, and Public Toilets, it is a must visit. It also features plenty of lawn space and formal gardens, natural wetland spaces and a duck pond.
The kid’s play area (known as Galaxy Land ) is split into 3 sections for various ages. It is toddler friendly, and also has equipment suitable for children of all abilities. Featuring climbing areas, slides, fireman’s poles, walkways, and swings for the older ones, this playground will keep the kids entertained all day.
The Duck pond is well populated and as this is not a designated off leash area for dogs, it is usually well populated. The area is nicely planted so there is plenty of flora for the local wildlife.
The Barbecue area has two shaded tables with several seats without shade nearby. There are adequate facilities, with both public toilets and a water tap. There is also plenty of lawn if you would prefer to eat picnic style.
There is plenty of parking around Jacksons Park. With access via both streets there usually is no issue.
Overall, Jacksons Park is one of the best family parks in Sunbury. With a beautiful atmosphere and peaceful viewing areas, it really will make a wonderful visit for the whole family.
