Nestled in Balmain Peninsula, Mort Bay Park is popular among locals - large open space areas and spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. It is easily accessible by taking a ferry to Balmain Thames Street Wharf, and you'll find the park is just at the doorsteps.
Surrounded by grassed and shaded areas, the park is a great place for family picnic and outing. You can either bring your own food or bring down with you some food from Darling Street as there are a lot of cafes.
Additionally, this park is a shared dog off leash area - it is a real fun to watch the happy dogs running around and chasing the balls on the grassed areas. However councils and/or park authorities may change their regulations regarding dog exercise areas at any time. Just check the park management for the latest information.

Adjacent to this park is Ballast Point Park, which is another great spot to continue with your exploration.
Mort Bay Park has everything you could ask for – a combination of foreshore walks, great views, great open space areas, a dog-friendly environment and a wide array of facilities at one spot. Come over there on the weekends to enjoy a fun-filled outing.
