Getting To Cook Park, Brighton-Le-Sands


Where Is It?

Cook Park accompanies Lady Robinsons Beach, stretching out along the western end of Botany Bay from Kyeemagh to the north through Brighton-Le-Sands, Ramsgate and Dolls Point, running parallel to The Grand Parade. It can be accessed from many points along the way.

Buses

The 303, X03 and 478 all stop along the Grand Parade.

Bike Route

A shared walking / bike path runs through the park (and sometimes along the promenade). It is flat and easy to ride, and eventually joins up to the Cooks River Cycleway in the north via the Bestic Street Cycleway through Kyeemagh.

Address

There are a number of cross streets that connect to the Grand Parade, which runs parallel to the park. See below for parking.

Parking

There is parking to the north off General Holmes Drive and Bestic Street then along Grand Parade (north to south) near Solander Street, Robinson Street, Burlington Street, Culver Street, Florence Street and Ramsgate Road. Despite the number of parking lots, it can be hard to find parking during peak periods, and you may have to look for on street parking at the backstreets nearby.
