Excellent environment for exercise and enjoyment
Robertson Park is the perfect place to stay active. The park is a Brisbane City Council "your active and healthy park". The park has it all: a flat concrete walking circuit, exercise stations, half-basketball court, playground equipment, barbecue, picnic tables, water bubbler, and the obligatory toilet facilities - and that is just the human-made additions. The park has the most glorious established trees, the happiest loquacious lorikeets and the freshest of air.

Robertson Park
This is it!

On any given morning, one is greeted by joggers, fellow walkers, cyclists, dogs and their owners. Some days, school students are out running, and on other days, groups of super fit folk are busy in boxing class.

For errant exercisers like me, the council has prepared what I consider to be 'encouragement' signs, telling me how many more steps I need to take to reach the end of the path. Sure, I tell myself, I can manage another 350 steps, so I keep plodding along. And then another sign urges me to put in another modest number of steps. And soon, I have easily completed the 1100 steps, and so I start another circuit.

The park facilities are well maintained; the slightest suggestion of a rise in the concrete, workers are there to smooth off and level the offending piece of concrete, and to replace any timber boards on the bridge that might be showing wear.

For those who find beauty in nature, there is an amazing tree that has been regrowing from the inside of an older tree. To me, it is a lovely symbol of renewal.
The Beauty of Nature
Nature's renewal

For me, walking in Robertson Park, surrounded by the exquisite beauty of nature, is the best. No more cardio funk for me.

Why don't you come down to the park one morning, and check it out for yourself.
