Ballast Point Park - Walama
The 2.5 hectares of foreshore land, formerly an industrial site for Caltex, was restored to provide walking paths, access for cyclists and green picnic spots with panoramic views to the city and Harbour Bridge.
Ballast Point Park is open to the public and includes a children's play area, barbecues and amenities, and is open from sunrise to sunset daily. It is an on-leash area for dogs.
It is located at the end of Ballast Point Road, Birchgrove, on the Balmain peninsula and is accessible by bus and ferry. There are also a small number of car spaces at the park.
Access for people with disabilities is from Wharf Road for the upper levels, and from Yeend Street for the foreshore promenade.
