The park is open to all and offers a delightful escape from the monotonous daily routine for people in the city.
Beyond the glitz of North Beach, Battery beach is less developed and less crowded. One reason for this may be that it has less facilities including kiosks, but has its advantages. It is a popular beach for working up a tan, as it is quiet, with few distractions (due to lack of things to do) from people playing games. The large amusement park to the north of the beach is a good place for families to spend a day, the Waterworld (which includes a fun park) and Animal Farm.
The park is located near the city centre in the Bulwer area and is readily accessible from King George V Road. This small park is distinguished as a natural heritage site because it contains many indigenous trees, including the Natal Elm, and preserves something of the original coastal environment. The bird life is good too, as you would expect in an indigenous environment. A 500m trail runs on either side of the valley. Beware of biting insects, especially in the summer.
