Blackwattle Bay Park is a wonderful place to take a stroll on a sunny day. The water beside you glistens as you take in the city skyline. Sydney tower reaches up in its golden splendor, while the white Sydney skyscrapers stretch to the sky. You pass some pretty Victorian buildings along the way, as well as some remnants of the grotty industry that used to pervade here. Now, though, there's far more loveliness than industry. You can walk all the way from the end of Glebe Point Rd to the end of Ferry Rd on a cement walking path. Dog owners like this park because dogs are allowed to run leash-free. It's not so good if you're scared of being bowled over or have a young child who is about the same height as the dogs. Blackwattle Bay Park's pathway continues on at Jubilee Park/Federal Park and you can follow it all the way to the tram (light rail) station. This is a handy way to get back to the city center for only about $4.
Admire the architecture of Bellevue Cottage, a Victorian house with Italianate features, built in 1896. It is owned by the Sydney Council and was a cute cafe for a while. When you leave, to get back to the walking path, you walk down little stone steps through a tiny forest of trees, and you feel that all is right with the world.
