Spent a bit of time here. Great for picnics, families, whoever. Feels really spacious as you look back toward the city. The food truck set up was a brilliant addition to this space.

My friend who lives here took me to the foreshore to see the city at night. I was stunned. So beautiful and peaceful from this distance. Little ferries scuttling across the Swan and a fantastic paddle boat docked.
