Frank Smith Memorial Park

About 10 minutes from home is a memorial park with something for everyone. Originally it was the site of a family farm bought in 1896 by Jacob and Mary Ellen Smith, parents of Frank.  Walking around the park there are obvious remnants of the farm.

Within the park are a BMX track, cricket nets, Picnic Shelter, an oval and playground.

The dam is a very special place, digging this dam gave Frank Smith purpose when distraught at the death of his son, John. Over the years many local kids have come to swim in the dam after school.

On a relaxing walk around the park you can see attractive plants and of course birds.
