This mini island in your neighbourhood is the perfect spot to frequent when you want to have a fun day out with the family. A hidden secret where mostly locals only go, the park has a playground, little beach with an enclosed swimming area that’s ideal for the kids to play and paddle, a boat ramp should you want to bring along your Sea Fox 248 Commander boat or Sea-Doo Jet Ski (included in the home lottery), and a fishing platform for lazy afternoons casting your line in. The boardwalk offers an idyllic stroll over the water alongside the mangroves, too.
