Adjacent to Costello Stadium, this site incorporates Peter Pan Park. The park is home to sports pitches on the main field, a small boating lake, a Parkrun and playground (Peter Pan Park).

The Stadium has a cafe and toilet facilities, when open - more information can be found here.

Costello is flat open grassed parkland. It has a good set of prepared pathways that the two shorter courses make use of. However, the longest course crosses the grassed areas and competitors need to be be able to make progress across this terrain.
