Off Leash Dog Exercise

Dogs are permitted off leash on Smith and Spindlers Parks when there are no sports games on. They should remain on leash around Hogan Park and away from the playground. There is also an off leash dog area in JV McMahon Park on the other side of the creek.

Johnstons Creek Aqueduct

The large, bridge-like structure that runs through this area is actually a sewer aqueduct and one of Sydney’s first uses of reinforced concrete. It is still in use.
