“We like to get out for a bike ride along Second Ponds Creek when we’ve got a spare afternoon. It’s really relaxing to be among the birds and trees.”

Enjoy a short brisk walk along Second Ponds Creek with your kids and dogs or just hop on your bike for an easy ride through remnant woodland past the scenic pond.

There is plenty of shade along this easy walk, so it’s a good one for a sunny day. Be sure to look and listen out for the birds along the way. You’re sure to feel energised after a little dose of nature. 

The walk starts from the picnic area, why not take a walk before your picnic to work up a hunger?
