Park features

Climbing Boulders

Climbing has seen a dramatic rise in popularity over the last few years and has even become an Olympic sport. Cowboys Park is now home to three climbing boulders, known as The Three Little Brothers - Big Brother, Middle Brother and Little Brother.

These new climbing boulders are an aesthetic piece of landscape architecture that allow both new and experienced climbers the opportunity to boulder outdoors on natural rock.

Please note: For your safety and enjoyment please read the permanent safety advisories, which are also installed on-site. Make sure to read all safety instructions before using the bouldering area.
