The walk is downhill, but the scenery isn't
This is one of those hidden parks of suburbia. At 2.4 hectares, Bullen Reserve is a large, diverse and well-linked reserve close to Jackson Court Shopping Centre. Bullen Reserve contains an area of significant native vegetation, a playground and a path network perfect for walking and exploring.
The concrete path sloping downwards would test the braking ability of a wheelchair and the return journey would be a challenge. A solution would be to descend carefully, leave your wheelchair-bound friend to enjoy the ambience and bring your transport to one of the other three streets that give access to the reserve.
