  • My pooches and I have a great time socialising at this park . Lots of pooches to meet.
  • I predominantly come here to use the playground. It has bathroom facilities and ample car parking spaces. A water bubbler is next to the playground. A very relaxed and laid back environment. The other side of the canal is an off leash dog park. The reserve is good for riding bikes and scooters. You can follow the path all the way north to reach the Bay Run.
  • A peacefully Park in the inner west. Try Bones Cafe on the Leichhardt side for great BLT
  • If you love dogs then this place is for you. Cafe and lots of places for your dog to run.
  • Great little dog park. Well serviced by the Council, plenty of shade, plenty of seats, a good, long area to run and a great little cafe right in the middle. Everyone here seems quite friendly and the vast majority of the dogs we have seen here are very well behaved and friendly.
