Overall assessment: The new inclusive playground and spray park has turned Somerset Park from a good park to a great park.
The park has so much to offer and is a great place for a wide age range. It is one of the best all around family fun parks in the city.
The playground has some really great features such as the cool rope climber which will be a hit with bigger kids and the ground level merry-go-round which all kids will love.
The park also includes a basketball and tennis courts, bathrooms and change rooms. The spray park has been newly redeveloped and has both little sprays and a huge dump bucket.
Expect the park to be busy on hot days. This playground definitely deserves a spot on your summer bucket list.
