Gollum’s Tree – see if you can spot this whimsical door that has been carved into one of the Norfolk Pine trees along the Scarborough foreshore. It would appear that Gollum (Lord of the Rings) spends part of his time living in Scarborough when not in Middle Earth!

Jumping Pillow – let the kids bounce off some energy on the large inflatable jumping pillow located near the basketball rings.
