Parramatta Lake

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.

The Swain Gardens, at 77 Stanhope Rd, Killara, is a beautiful little pocket of suburban peace and quiet.

Lovingly tended, beautifully designed old garden.

Well worth a visit with or without a dog!

COVID-19, local only, so a look at where the council is up to re what’s been added to the walk along the river around Rydalmere.
Pretty well done.

Thanks to my sons for this find.
And well done Inner West Council – Marrickville Golf Club closes the first fairway each Sunday afternoon – beers and dogs on the green. Nice!

This video shows the scene 🙂
