Another great local walk we stumbled across. Actually we were just going for a little walk to warm up before an Obedience Trial and, well we almost missed our turn at the trial as we were having such a great time on our walk. So what we discovered was Western Sydney Parklands walking path.
The part of the path that we did was the 1.9km from Powers Rd to Richmond Rd. We started at the Blacktown Canine Centre on Owen St Glendenning (it is where Blacktown Kennel & Training Club train) and headed north towards Richmond Road.
The Best Bits:
- An Easy Track For Everyone: The track here is all bitumen and flat. It is perfect if the family wants an outing as the small humans can take their bikes or scooters and ride along the track too.
- Easy Parking: Most of the time the gates to the Blacktown Canine Centre will be closed, unless there is dog training or a competition on, but you can easily park on the road and just walk through to the track. If the little humans are with you on their bike or scooter than you will need to go across a bit of grass to get to the track from the BCC.
- Plenty More To Explore: We have just checked out a small part of the track but there is plenty more to explore. If you pop around to Warrigal Run at Bungarribee there is an off-leash park.
- Amenities: On this part of the walk there isn’t amenities for the humans but as you pass by the BCC at the start there is poo bags (but we always like to take our own just in case) and there is a water trough and tap.
The Not So Good Bits:
- On-lead: It is an on-lead walk and there is no off-lead areas during the walk. We use the Ezy Dog Road Runner lead that we got through Love That Pet that gives me a bit of length to sniff around while we walk.
- Lack Of Amenities For Humans: We are out this way when we are competing in trials so the clubhouse is open with all those relevant amenities for humans but the rest of the time… well you humans need to get organised and make sure you go before and bring your own water and snacks.
We are looking forward to exploring more of the Western Sydney Parklands so if you get out there and see some more we would love to hear from you and see your photos.
