King George Park

Home > Sydney > Parks | Picnic Spots
Published June 4th 2010
To the north of the Leichardt municipality, away from the bustle of Roselle's main traffic artery, lies King George Park.

Sitting on the corner of Manning and Byrnes St, King George Park is directly opposite the Drummoyne equivalent, Brett Park.

The park lies in a valley, perched on sandstone outcrops along the shore line. King George Park offers particularly good views of both Half Moon Bay and Rodd Island.

Apart from boasting the quiet stillness of the Harbour, and the sight of yachts moored under a low-standing bridge that connects the shorelines of Rozelle and Drummoyne, King George Park also offers a liesurely pedestiran and cycle path.

In fact, for running enthusiasts, King George Park is an ideal location for training for the Bay Run. The run is approximately 7km long, running along Iron Cove Bay. With various clubs taking part in organized and social running events, King George Park is merely one leg of a run that connects the shore line.

For those less inclined to dedicate the early hours to running, there are also facilities for the less athletic amongst us, including a children's playground and areas dedicated to simply soaking in the atmosphere.

Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the park is the fact that it is only a shore journey to the cafes and shops that characterize the urban cool of Rozelle and Balmain.
