Friends of Taylor Park has been a volunteer group for more than twenty years (since July 1989). Set close to the ocean, and between the busy shopping centre & urban homes, many people use the park for their walking pleasure, with the occasional BarBQ, beneath mature Eucalypts and in close proximity to the ocean.
