Merrivale Road is a fair sized park with many entrances. Although it might look like there are lots of trees using Google Maps, there is actually only one. This is a medium sized Sycamore tree to the right side of the main entrance. The bulk of the trees are within the boundary of the sub-station so not actually part of the park. Despite the lack of trees there are several small hills covered in a variety of weeds and grasses that are good for wildlife and fun for kids. A small row of Dog Roses can be found at the very back part as well as a single Common Hawthorn bush as well as a nettle patch. By the sub-station there is a small children's play area with a single swing, round-a-bout and an adventure fort. This is enclosed by a metal fence and is aimed for the younger kids. Within the centre of the park itself is a wooden adventure trail with balance boards, chain bridges and so on. There is a also a shelter within the centre of the park which is useful if you are caught in a shower or bad weather.
