  • Great water views. Low key park. Well maintained.
  • Having a young child, finding parks with good playgrounds is a must. Elkington Park is pretty, has good views and a better than average playground.
  • Great park with a great view. Cliff area with views of Cockatoo island, brick gazebo, childrens playground, lots of trees/benches/picnic tables, water fountains for dogs and humans. Can be busy and noisy when the kids are using dawn fraser pool. The cliff-side can be dangerous for clumsy puppies.
  • Beautiful views, hood picninc spot and dog-friendly.
  • Amazing views and a nice playground

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
