  • Overall Park experience is good there are enough toilets but there is no option for the children toilet plenty of playing options and swimming. Water is bit dirty but swimming will be fine. There are camping spots as well i saw few families were kayaking in the water looks fun definitely try it if you want it.
  • A truly scenic place to walk. Lovely views over Berowra Creek, rugged cliffs and virgin bush. Ancient aboriginal carvings worth a look. The Great North Walk traverses the park but it’s very steep and arduous in places so be well prepared and it’s not for the infirm or unfit.
