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.

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!

Cowells Lane Reserve at Dundas is an ENORMOUS off leash park, perfect for a walk for you and your dog.

There’s a creek for her to roll in and get muddy, a level (wheelchair friendly) path for walking, a fenced playground… this park has it all.

There’s a great path right around the lagoon at Narrabeen on Sydney’s northern beaches.

A busy path, lots of walkers and bike riders.

7 or 8 kilometres.

So this weekend, very excited… cafes are back opening so we went for breakfast at Parramatta and then headed over to North Parramatta where we did a loop track around the lake.

Wikipedia says:

  • The masonry arch-walled dam was completed in 1856 to supply water for domestic purposes
  • The dam was the twelfth engineered dam built since Roman times
  • the first engineered dam in Australia
  • the second arch built dam universally that involved calculations for its construction.

Wow. Who knew?

About 5 km

Can’t keep the dog out of the water!

We walked The Ponds Walk – part of the Subiaco Creek Bushwalk, from Dundas up to Carlingford.
This sign says it all.

We’ve walked around Clarkes Point many times, but, still under the COVID-19 stay at home and travel less in full swing, local exercise options were allowed so we went back for another walk around Hunters Hill and Clarkes Point.

We’ve walked around Riverview before, but with COVID-19 in full swing, local options were compulsory, so we went back for another stroll along the waterfront at Saint Ignatius’ College,

We’ve walked around Birchgrove once or twice before – the dogs love the little beach at the end of Louisa Rd – and with local-only COVID-19 options available, we went back for a swim and walk.
