  • This is hands down the best canal reserve in Sydney. A great open dog park with friendly people all around. The light rail is also here so it is incredibly convenient  more »
  • It's very easy to access next to the light rail. The park and the river are quite long and narrow, but the image is well reflected.

  • My favorite riding path now. It would be very nice to walk ,run or ride along the whole lake. Please it's like a dog party every weekend where you can find all kinds of dogs to be trained or play together. There're bbq too so also make it a wonderful picnic area.
  • Great space, enough shady trees, every age, size, breed & level of socialisation (eventually); tables, chairs & toilets for the humans; and fresh food, drinks & treats for dogs & humans...I wish I could live here!
