Love waking up to go on an adventure. My motto is to collect memories not possessions.

Wonderful Views, Walks and Place to Picnic
Kissing Point Park is a popular park located on the foreshore of Parramatta River. It is a lovely park to visit if you are in the area - it has play equipment, toilets, barbeques, views and walking tracks.
The equipment in the park is great as it caters for both little and big kids. There is a play area specifically for toddlers with a tunnel, climbing area and wheel and another playground that is great for the big kids with slide, rock wall and climbing equipment.
A key drawcard of the park is the great views up and down Parramatta River. If you head down to the pathway at the bottom of the park you can watch the Rivercats and boats come and go. The park is located right at the Rivercat Wharf so catch a Rivercat here or use the park as the base for a ferry ride into the CBD. There is also a boat jetty if you are lucky enough to have your own vessel.
The park is along the Ryde River Walk path so once you have had a play and a picnic head off for a walk. We went to the left where there is a lovely sandy beach area - perfect for some rock walking and sand fun.
To the right of the park is the Concord and Ryde Sailing Club and also a ship building yard. Here you will also see the Walluami Wind Sculpture which is a tribute to the Wallumedegal Tribe who are the traditional inhabitants of the area. The sculpture depicts Snapper or 'Wallumai' fish.
The park has all the amenities you need including barbeques, parking, swings, toilets (including an accessible toilet) and walking paths. The park is not fenced so make sure you keep an eye on the little ones.
Find the park at Waterview Street, Putney NSW 2112. There are two carparks, so if the carpark at the wharf is full, head up the hill a little and there is a second carpark.
