Nice to know - The reserve is also home to the Everton District Cricket Fields. Perched on top of the hill, the sports fields offer a huge grassy area for you to enjoy. 

Need to know - if you’re after the cricket fields, you can access the reserve from Kenna Street. The Maundrell Terrace entrance and car park is best for the playground, dog parks and fitness station. Take along insect repellent, especially after rain or if you’re visiting in the late afternoon.
