Ruffey Lake Park is most impressive with two significant playgrounds on either side of vast, rolling parklands. The playgrounds have something for all ages, are interesting, have shade and are situated amongst heaps of lovely eucalypts. Take a picnic and the kids bikes, and while away a happy afternoon.

Mostly suitable for older kids. Best to go on weekdays as weekends can get quiet busy.
They've updated it at the victoria street entrance and added more BBQs and seating.
Most of the park is off leash for dogs, but they aren't allowed in the playground. But unfortunately, many don't follow these rules and you can find dogs in the playground on weekends.

Recently we had a family function at this park and although it was incredibly busy the park caters so well for the number of people that attend that it wasn't an issue.

There are many tables / chairs and bbq's.

Plenty of space for many children to play in the two playgrounds. The flying fox was especially a big hit for my elder children.

My toddlers loved the thrill of the large slide as well as the sandpit and swings.

We spent a good 6 hours at the park and at the end of the day the kids still weren't ready to leave!!

This park is amazing. Beautiful location, great walking paths and awesome playgrounds. Be sure to pack lunch as you won't want to leave.

This is a fantastic park, probably suited most for 5-10 year olds. It has flying foxes, a giant slide, sandpit, lots of monkey bars, toilets and on weekends, sometimes a coffee caravan is set up which is handy! Very spread out so you don't notice the crowds so much.

If you don’t like sandpits with water, this isn’t the park for you! Great park for older children, lots of climbing, sliding, swinging and adventures to be had. Beautiful location with lots of space, trees and seating areas. Handy toilet block and parking. We always bring a spare change of clothes as the sandpit seems to be the main feature.

Brilliant park! Lots of fun to be had with the water well and sandpit, cool colourful stones and mosaics.
