There is a large childrens' playground where all children, regardless of age and ability, can enjoy playing on the wide range of play equipment.
Younger children will love the battery-operated kiddi-cars and a cruise on the lake in a real motor boat. Older kids will have fun on the bumper boats, the go-karts or the monster truck. The Dance and Fun Factory also have an indoor soft play area.
The entire family will enjoy a round of crazy golf or mini-golf (pitch and putt).
Energetic adults may wish to play a few sets of tennis or perhaps a more leisurely game of crown green bowling or flat green bowling. For refreshments, visit the Views Coffee Shop for great coffee, cold drinks, snacks and ice cream, or treat the family to a lunch or evening meal in the Views Restaurant.
Nivison Stadium is also the home of stock car racing on the Island. Onchan Raceway operate stock car meetings weekly from April to September.
The park also hosts a number of additional events throughout the season, such as Easter egg hunts, a roller-rink, marching bands, the village fair, motorcycle displays, dog obedience shows, play days, bowls competitions and model boat exhibitions.
Disability access is excellent and there are adapted toilets near the coffee shop.
The main feature of the park was the stadium. Started in 1948, it took 3 years to make the first ever banked cycle track. The park costing £50,000 included a grandstand, cafe, changing rooms, bowling green, tennis courts, putting green, miniature gold and a children play area. Once completed it proves itself the pride of the Island. Since then many improvements have been made, including the creation of a boating lake. The stadium has also undergone change with a move from cycle racing to karting, stock cars and football.
