    Great park to walk your dog ! While you can enter from breaker bay, an easier way is to drive up past Scots College to Bowes Crescent. At the end of this cul de sac is a small car park that leads straight onto the huge area of native bush and parkland. Even a few stray rabbits around if your dog is quick !
