I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

At the large intersection beside Barker College, there are four directions to choose between. If you head down the least used, Pretoria Parade, you will find Reddy Park, a place that exceeded my expectations when I visited recently.

There's a lot to like about Reddy Park

This park has great shade and great equipment. I particularly liked the equipment because it wasn't the typical, brightly-coloured plastic type, but wooden and in keeping with the natural setting (trees grow everywhere). There's swings, a flying fox (the only other one I know about in Hornsby is at Crosslands Reserve) and more. All together everything is quite pretty.

The flying fox

There are plenty of seats and tables around the park, but no facilities for cooking, such as a barbecue.

Some of the features of the park

The playground is fenced along the road, and to the rear is a turpentine forest. A path leads away, to the side of these trees, and it will take you to the Werna Place side of the park. However there isn't really anything to do over there.

If you continue along Pretoria Parade, down to the bottom of the valley, you will find Ginger Meggs Park. It was one of the locations in Hornsby where the creator of Ginger Meggs, Jimmy Bancks, used to play.
