Despite the constant hum of passing traffic, this is another lovely area to walk around and keep an eye out for a variety of birds and possums that may be living in tree hollows – so-called “habitat trees”.
The shared-use walking and cycling trail heads north from here, along the side of Dequetteville Terrace, up to the corner of Bartels Road,
From that point, walkers and cyclists can either cross Bartels Road at the traffic lights, or head westwards on the southern side of Bartels Road back towards the city, on the northern side of the Park 15 sporting fields.
In that north-eastern part of Park 15, there are two clubrooms and toilet blocks adjacent to Bartels Road that were built in the 1960’s.
However on this Trail, you can get off the bitumen now. You turn back here into the centre of the Park, to view one of its little-appreciated sights.
TURN AROUND AND WALK DIRECTLY ACROSS THE PLAYING FIELDS TO REACH THE METAL FENCED CRICKET PRACTICE NETS.
