The Varsity Foreshore Parklands are a great community space, home to many local events. But when the events aren’t on, it’s a fabulous open parkland perfect for waterfront walks, a play on the playground and lunch time picnics!
Lake Orr is a popular spot with walkers, and this very pram friendly walk is a great 2km loop that you can even bring the kids along on their bikes. There are 2 small playgrounds along the Foreshore section of the lake, serving as opportunities to break up the walk/ride and let the kids play. There are also toilet facilities at the Foreshore, so my recommendation is to start and finish your visit to the Foreshore Parklands here. Parking is easy along the street, and if you’re not up for the full 2km loop, you can take a short stroll along the waterfront boardwalk instead.
