On The Lead Walk * 3.5km Round Walk * Shared Path * Playgrounds * Exercise Stations * Toilets * BBQs (near Dodd St)
Lake Monger Wembley is a beautiful round the lake walk for dogs and their owners. With the city skyline in the background and stunning trees lining most of the shared path perimeter, a walk around Lake Monger is the pefect place to enjoy a long walk with your dog (on the lead).
We parked at Powis St carpark and walked around (you can also park off Lake Monger Drive or Dodd St). A little tip next time I would walk around anti clockwise. I found that Arrow wanted to walk on the lake side and so he kept wandering into the inside lane which is tricky when there are bikes going around also. The walk around is approx 3.5km and took us just about 45mins. There is a lot of water bird life around so it is best to abide by the signs and leave your dog on the lead at all times.
The shared pathway goes all the way around and is suitable for prams and bikes also. Most of the pathway is naturally shaded and there are toilets on the Lake Monger Drive carpark side of the lake.
There are a couple of playgrounds on the Lake Monger side of the lake (one is fully fenced) and you will also find some exercise stations near both playgrounds.
You'll find a water fountain and dog bowl on the west side of Lake Monger. If it is a really not day we recommend you bring your own water a long, as this is the only one we could find and it is quite a long walk around the lake.
As we came back around there was another kids fully fenced playground (near Dodd St) with exercise stations and a BBQ.
We finished off our walk with a walk out onto the boardwalk and gazebo that overlooks the lake. You can look out over the whole of Lake Monger here.
If you are looking for a nice long walk with your dog then we highly recommend a walk around Lake Monger. The scenery is beautiful and there is lots of water life to enjoy. You'll find plenty of parking at various locations around the lake.
