Access to the picnic area from the carpark is along a gravel path that has an approximate slope of 1 in 14 for about 80 metres.
The picnic area is large and flat with a grass surface.
There are several electric barbecues with a working height of 850 millimetres. The barbecues are located on a concrete slab that is a metre wide on all sides. They are operated by a small, recessed, push-button switch.
The picnic tables are of a square design with three fixed seats and one open side to accommodate a wheelchair or people bringing their own chair for back support. The tables are located on a natural surface allowing ample room around each table.
At the rear of the picnic area is a large pavilion. It has one fixed table of the same accessible design with room for two more portable tables.
