What We Thought of WH Yeo Park
Our family enjoyed a variety of activities at his spacious park by the water. Parking near the fenced playground, we spent time playing there before discovering the other playground (unfenced).
We enjoyed sitting under a shady tree for morning tea and watching the boats. We especially loved the relaxing walk along the esplanade gathering treasures along the way.
