King George V Park

Top choice in Tasmania

Hidden behind Main St's shops (access is via an asphalt path), this park has plenty of trees and lawn, a children's playground, public toilets, picnic tables, BBQs and an utterly charming mosaic walk inspired by local flora and fauna. The mosaics were created by members of the community and are much more attractive than most of the town's murals. The Sheffield Working Art Space is located at the northern edge of the park.
