Shady park with wonderful water views
Winding your way in towards the city along Sydney's north shore, seemingly every corner you turn you come across another lovely park with spectacular water views. Longueville Reserve, with its gently sloping grass and enviable location, is another one of the area's great waterfront reserves.

Accessed from Stuart Street in Longueville, the reserve is located a very short stroll from the very popular Aquatic Park. Longueville Reserve is a gently sloping grassed area with large trees overlooking Lane Cove River.

Looking further afield, the reserve offers views of the Sydney skyline beyond. Finding a shady spot in the park and simply taking in the scenery in front of you is thebest way to experience Longueville Reserve.

It's also the ideal place for a picnic. There are picnic tables and seats available, or you can find your own little patch of grass to occupy. With ample shade provided by several tall trees, you can stay out of the sun and enjoy the cool breeze blowing in off the water.

While there are no barbecues or toilets available in this park, you'll find both just a short walk away in Aquatic Park. Longueville Reserve does, however, have a nice little kids' playground for youngsters to explore.

Longueville Reserve also has an interesting historical element. On a section of exposed rock overlooking the river, Aboriginal rock engravings depicting an emu and a fish were made by Aborigines of the Ku-ring-gai tribe prior to white settlement in 1790.
