I have enjoyed lighting firework here.

Beautiful park in the heart of the city

Art in the Dark is tonight! From 8pm! So excited, it was such a special event last year. No cancellations thus far!

Where else could you wander amongst the mighty Moreton Bay Fig trees, walk barefoot over pebble mosaics amongst architectural ruins with a glorious view down to the city harbour and everyone's dogs are FREE to run and chase after each other off the leash?

With green grass, rolling hills and plenty of sticks to be found, Western Park is an off leash doggie paradise. There's also an impressive kids playground and a multi station workout course, plotted around the park. 

Western Park is my favourite inner city outdoor area. When I need to switch off from big smoke life, I head to this park located in the suburb of Freemans Bay. It’s a midsized park with several walkways, a kids playground and a small performance space amongst the scenery. If you need an escape Western Park’s well worth checking out.

This park is one of the best off leash areas in Ponsonby. Its on a big hill, has plently of open soace for ball throwing and lots of foresty areas for eager noses to explore. They also have a water fountain for pooches and doggy poo bags available.

My dog loves his daily trip to Western Park, an off leash oasis in Freemans Bay that is big enough to keep everyone happy. It is perfect on hotter days when pups need a little shade along with their space, and even has a water fountain at canine level for refreshment stops.

A great place to relax and take in some sun. Great playground for the kids but nice quiet spaces if that’s what you’re after. Lots of dog walkers around but they mostly seem to clean up their mess.

Great walks-awesome for a run up and down the winding paths,a GEM in the city!
