The park has been split into Tiger Sharks and Baby Sharks. The Baby Sharks have a lovely climbing frame and swing set to enjoy. The Tiger Sharks have a large pryamidal climbing frame, swings and the multi-use games court. There are also spinning discs on the floor and a few other bits of equipment to explore.
The mulit-use games court sits at the centre of the park and is perfect for football, basketball and netball. The ping-pong (table tennis) table is also a great addition.
Outside of the main play area you will find a green space with trails, hills and wooded areas. This is a great space for exploring on foot or on your bike. With gravel paths and some small hills it is better for more confident riders. Take a walk and enjoy views of Chatham Dockyard or Upnor Castle and Upnor Beach
There are several picnic tables in the main play area and some more in the surrounding green space.
There are no public toilets available at this park. The closest public toilets are at Dockside Shopping Centre
