A peaceful local walking path where you can discover wetlands, bush and local birdlife.
The path is paved in concrete and suitable for pushchairs. See if you can find the bird tracks through the concrete path along the way.
Enter from Skelligs Drive, where you'll also find on-street parking.
At the start of the path in Topland Park there's a great playground nestled in established bush. This is a perfect activity for younger children to start their adventure.
The path continues alongside wetlands, over bridges, and a second playground with a flying fox and exercise equipment. You'll also find a picnic table where you can stop for a break and bite to eat.
Bear in mind there's no public toilet on the route - the closest is at nearby Barry Curtis Park.
