Gloucester Park is adjacent to the Recreation Centre and is the centre for outdoor sports with three ovals, cricket pitch and hockey field. The Margaret River football, tennis and bowling clubs are all located within this park.

The Wallcliffe Road garden is particularly popular among community members. As well as being beautiful, these gardens are hardy, drought-resistant and waterwise.
