The residents of Sydney enjoy their perambulations. For history buffs, there are historical walking tours provided by the City of Sydney. For the aspiring flaneur, there are walks around the streets of Sydney. But surely, the crowning glory of Sydney's walking paths are undoubtedly the coastal walks.
The City of Canada Bay encompasses seventeen suburbs with views over the Harbour. It is undoubtedly as a result of this superior geographical location that Canada Bay offers a variety of walking routes along the foreshore.
Lysaght Park is based in Chiswick. Chiswick is one of a series of inner-west suburbs on the peninsula between Abbotsford and Five Dock Bay. The Park is accessible from Byrne Ave, which lies at a right angle in relation to Lyons Rd. It is a rather convoluted journey from Pitt St to Byrne Ave, although the drive should take under 15 minutes.
Apart from the walking routes, Lysaght Park is lauded as one of the best "dog parks" in Canada Bay Council. According to the Inner Western Courier, "at Lysaght Park on Five Dock Bay, they can stretch out for a run."
Apart for the off-leash privileges for the canine, there are picnic amenities for people less inclined to brisk walks.
