There was also an indoor cafe selling snacks and lollies, a small boating lake and a roofed stage area for shows, including a beauty competition, the Miss Jubilee event.

The most recent renovation works were in 2006 with a childrens play area, skateboard park and multi use games but since then, residents say the park needs to be improved.
