Discovering this area and park for the first time. Such a great view at the waterfront and so many walking paths. A friendly relaxed atmosphere. Will be visiting again.

The well-known Bay Run, skirts the waterfront. There are sporting fields, bike and walking tracks, a couple of small sandy beaches and a Rowing Club. I suggest you detour off the well-worn paths and discover the hidden aspects of this historic precinct - a former...More

Huge park - with lots of interesting old buildings and water views. Can get tricky to park there when football is on. Forms part of the bay run track.

An absolute joy of a park. It has some stunning views of the water, the grassy walks are just wonderful. Running/cycling tracks, rest and play areas. Well worth a visit.

It's a beautiful park with buildings in various states of repair and the odd supposedly haunted building. Necessary open space for inner city residents. Only problem the speeding soccer parents exceeding the 25km limit in their SUV's compulsory now for inner city living.
