I write for fun, enjoy sharing places that cater for food allergies and the like.

Civic Park in North Sydney is such a pretty spot to have a picnic lunch with colleagues, a place for kids to play or even exercise if you're up for it.

Strolling up from North Sydney station, it took me almost 10 minutes to walk up the hill. Just passing North Sydney Council Chambers sits this beautiful park. I sat on the grassy hill right in front of the Stanton Library enjoying the sun, beautiful trees and fresh air.

The fountain at the front of the park was in full swing, people sitting by it, some children running up and putting their hands in the water.

It was lovely to see the old red telephone box - that proves my age. Jagos Café for a coffee after my meal made it all the more perfect.

North Sydney's popular Twilight Food Fair in Civic Park is on 5.30pm to 9.30pm, from November to the end of daylight savings. It is a popular Friday evening 'hot food' market with international food stalls, noodles, and good music. You can bring a rug, a friend and a bottle of wine and enjoy a relaxed start to the weekend. There is always something to do North Sydney Council


if you're up for it

This Saturday, 27 October it is holding a kids festival themed Dinosaurs and Dragons from 10am to 2pm - I'm sure the little ones will love it. They can even play in the fountain. Great fun!

Set perfectly on Miller Street, I just found it to be a perfect lunch break, resting my eyes, eating my lunch, people watching and having a pretty darn good cup of coffee!
