Other parts of Victoria Park are well used for a wide variety of intensive sports and recreation - from running and cycling, to equestrian activities.
However not all of the sporting activities here require physical strength or fitness.
This flat shaded gravel area is for playing the leisurely game of "petanque" similar to bocce or boules.
There are barbecue facilities, tables and benches alongside. The shade offered here makes it an attractive option for summer gatherings.
Now walk a few metres further north - to the first of the activities on the so-called "Sweat Track".
