Edwin Street Park in Narooma is a tribute to the founder of Streets ice-creams, Ted Street. If you're a fan of the Paddle Pop, one of Street's greatest creations, then you can pay your respects to this surfboard shaped iced confectionary by taking a seat on one of the uniquely created paddle pop park benches that adorn the park.
Nibble, lick and slurp your way through your favourite flavour as you take in the majestic views of the Wagonga Inlet below. A small path winds its way from the top of the hill to the bottom, which includes an information board about the Streets in Narooma.

A local fibreglass maker explained to me that the moulds for the benches were purpose built specifically for the park, with the kind of craftsmanship that mimics the smooth finish of the original. The park sign was also designed to look like a giant icy pole stick.
The views of the inlet from the park are stunning. You can watch the boats weave in and out of the breakwater at Wagonga Head, or the sea birds soaring high above the water. Be prepared as it can get quite windy at times. There's also not a lot of shade from the sun, so bring sun protection if you think you might like to pause for a while here.

If you want to pick up an ice-cream before you wander to the park, you can find one in the main street of Narooma in one of the bunch of shops at either the top or bottom of the hill. Parking is available in Bluewater Drive at the base of the park.
