Perfect place for an evening stroll
I hate the way that on a late Sunday afternoon you often end up waiting around for a few hours until dinner time and the preparations for the week ahead encroach on your precious weekend.
Last Sunday we'd been at the movies. We got home too late to head off to beach, but it seemed such a waste not to get out and enjoy the weather. So we headed off, with scooters for the kids, to do the Glebe Foreshore Walk.
We parked in the Chapman Rd carpark of Federal Reserve but you can start from any point, depending on where you are coming from.
The walk is an easy 2.5 kilometres of path and boardwalk, linking up Bicentennial Park, Federal Park, Jubilee Park, Blackwattle Bay Park and Pope Paul Reserve through over seventeen hectares of parkland.
The walk is used by joggers, dog walkers (some of the parks are off leash and some aren't, so mind the signs) couples and families, but the path is wide so even the kids managed stay out of the way of oncoming traffic, as they raced along.
The views are lovely and it was the perfect way to get a bit of exercise and enjoy the beautiful harbour city that we live in. Once we'd started our return to the car, we were forced to stop at one of the playgrounds along the way - we chose the 'old school' one in Jubilee Park for a change.
It was great to watch the community out and enjoying what this city has to offer, as I thought about how it was only a lazy habit and bad routine that had me usually wasting those hours as the evening descended. As the saying goes "Don't squander time, it's the stuff life is made of"
