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.

This park is great for kids too - there is a wonderful playground, basketball courts and bike paths. Kids always enjoy practising their skateboards or learning how to ride a bicycle.

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.
