The Kensington Bushland area and Harold Rossiter Park are both accessed from the main carpark located just off Kent Road, Kensington. The bushland walk is on the lead and is approximately 900m and will take you about 10mins to wander around.
The bushwalk is easy. It is all flat compacted limestone and there are signs to point out significant flora and fauna that may be seen in the area. If you follow the path around the outside towards Harold Rossiter Park you will come out within the park area. Once you enter this area you can take your dog off the lead (unless a sporting activity is on).
The park is located alongside the very busy Kent St, but it features about 3 big ovals so the furtherest ones are well away from the road. This is a lovely shady park with lots of tall trees around the outside as well as big open sunny grassed areas to run around. It was definitely a popular spot for some off the lead exercise with lots of friends to run around with during our visit.
For fur families with kids too there is little fully fenced playground here, right alongside the toilets and water fountain with dog bowl. There are club rooms here so you may find sporting events on here on the weekend, so your dog must be on a lead if sporting activities are in progress. If you want to stay a while longer there are bbqs and picnic tables near the clubrooms.
So if you are looking for an off the lead park to socialise with other dogs and their owners and you'd love the added bonus of a short nature walk you'll love Kensington Bushland and Harold Rossiter Park Kensington. And if it's a sunny day and you want to grab a coffee afterwards check out The Little Banksia just a short drive away (review to come soon), they love having furry visitors pop by or dine in.
