Jenkins Hill picnic area is located close to the Lane Cove River and weir. There’s a children’s playground that the kids are bound to enjoy and you’ll find picnic tables dotted around the area.
It’s a great place to laze the afternoon away after a tasty picnic or barbecue lunch. Lie back on the grass, gazing up among the trees above and you’ll be sure to spy a lorikeet or two and perhaps a kookaburra. If you’re feeling more energetic, you could bring your canoe or kayak for a spot of paddling along the river. Keep your eyes out for spoonbills wading through the water.
