Cairns / Reservoir Road (5km) / Goomboora Park (0.5km)
Turn off Reservoir Rd into Shale St at the Loridan Drive lights and keep right. This is a dog friendly park with poop bags provided. Freshwater Creek runs through the park and you can follow the creek through the rainforest on good paths. The avenue of fig trees running down to the BBQ area is worth a visit alone. The creek, called Freshwater creek, is the same creek that forms Crystal Cascades further upstream and is safe to swim in.
There are tables, benches and BBQs.The park is open until 9pm.
