Tarnham Road Reserve is west of Seaview High School and is a popular recreation area for the school community and local families.

School holiday activities are starting early with a community celebration at the reserve from 4-6pm this Thursday.

Members of the Lions Club of Hallett Cove and Districts will be cooking a barbeque, Vanessa from Voodoo Body Art will be doing ‘festival faces’ or face painting with bling, for older kids and Krystal from LaLa Latte coffee van will be serving up free coffee
