Eastgate Park is 200 acres of family fun, where you can get out into nature and make your day as relaxing or as active as you want.
And best of all, it’s free!
Take your favorite foods and enjoy a picnic out in the sun, before you spend the afternoon flying kites you may have picked up earlier.
If you want a relaxing day, you can enjoy the shade of the trees with a good book, or head out into one of the two ponds for a spot of fishing. Fishing is always great for families to find out about the latest news from their day – from work or from school. And always a bit of friendly competition about who catches the biggest fish!
For those more active families, you can hit a few balls on their tennis courts – maybe your dream is to play tennis at Queens? No better time to start! There are also areas for archers, but you do need to bring your own equipment for that, and you must hold a hunting licence.
Love the beach? You can imagine you are hitting the volleyballs next to the crashing waves as you team up against each other on their sand court, then wind down with a stroll along their 2 miles trails.
During season they also have kids baseball which you can go down and watch – maybe even be inspired to pick up the sport yourself?
If you are a nature lover and fancy bringing all your friends down to run around and play to celebrate, you can rent their house or pavilions for the occasion. Make a day of it! After all – it’s your day!
