Auburn – Duck River

The council has done a pretty good job at creating a walk along the Duck River. Level, wide, good access. Will be better when the river continues to get cleaned up, but until then… really?… people fishing? Glad I’m not going to his place for a BBQ!

Meadowbank TAFE

Meadowbank TAFE’s main entrance is on Blaxland Road near Top Ryde Shopping Centre, but the property extends all the way down the hill. Entering from that bottom gate reveals a great place for a walk through the various TAFE areas.

Huskisson to Valentia

Holidays!

We walked the beachside path (no off leash) from Huskisson to Valentia and back.

4km level path. Lovely 🙂

Forsyth Park at Neutral Bay, in the shade of Nth Sydney CBD.

Off leash dogs allowed when there’s no sport being played.

Community garden, historic (never used) oil containers for the war effort, playground and a bush path to enjoy.

Love Sydney.

At Clontarf, opposite The Spit, a great dog friendly beach, before fish and chips at Manly.

Great off leash fenced dog areas, a dip in the Lane Cove River, a walk along the foreshore, a lovely walk through the industrial and residential streets.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the “Missing Link” at Barangaroo was opened, so we headed in to the city, excited to walk from Darling Harbour, past the new casino, all the way to Barangaroo Point.

Sadly, their definition of the missing link being opened and ours, differs. Some of the link is open, but until the new Metro station is completed, she’s not open.

We took this pic which is part of what’s been opened up. It’s been well done.

A great walk through another part of Terrys Creek through Eastwood.

There’s a path connecting Fred Spurway Reserve and James Hoskin Reserve and Kilpack Park (The Ponds Creek.)

Back to an old favourite this weekend.
At the end of Birchgrove Point, there’s a lovely little sandy beach where dogs can play and swim in the harbour.
And because the beach is bounded by a wall with access via a narrow set of steps, it’s easy to contain recalcitrant runners!

Had a lovely walk around Parramatta Park.

No off leash areas, and the cafe was closed (!) but still, a good spot for a walk.

Fitting a new muzzle lead – she’s not impressed!

Remember these? The attendant would place his foot on the lever to admit one person at a time through the turnstile.
Lovingly restored at the back of the new Parramatta Oval

Never knew Parramatta Park had so many bats!
