We often walk in Yarra Bend Park, because it's an interesting place for both dogs and humans, and has been organised to be very dog-friendly.
A couple of days ago we explored a little further and found the place is even more amazing than we had realised. We crossed a bridge, turned a corner, and found a huge new area.
This photo is taken from our usual side, looking across the creek (in the dip) at the large grassy open spaces of the new area.
Not only were there open places to run, and hills to climb and descend
but also clumps of vegetation with winding paths to explore.
We found ourselves in an area bounded by houses, and a fellow dog walker told us it's a good area to walk in the evening, because the street lighting illuminates the part near the street.
We did have to walk alongside a busy road to get back to our starting point, but that's fine as long as we're careful. And of course, Penny is on lead there.
