The facilities here definitely lend themselves to use by sporty people, though admittedly that can probably be said about most ovals. But this one does have four netball courts in one corner, which aren't found everywhere.
Since I came to Montview Oval regularly years ago, a new addition has been added to the place; a bike park now lies along the side furthest from the road. It has dirt jumps, a roll-in mound and a pump track.
You don't need to hop off your bike once you get to this oval
With all the activities and sporting competitions that take place here, and with all the cars they bring, it's only fitting that Montview Oval has provided visitors with places to park. The main car park can be accessed from Montview Parade, with an extra section at one end accessible via Kookaburra Road.
There's also a small parking area on the other side of the oval, near a fire trail that serves as a popular place for people to walk their dogs. This track heads through the bush on the fringes of Hornsby Heights, an area you can see from the oval itself.
Montview Parade, the road on which the oval is located, is on the edge of Sydney's north. In fact, it's the last road off Galston Road before it heads through Galston Gorge and out to rural areas like Galston and Dural.
