Go for a walk or ride (North Lake)

Jillian Woolmer
City of Cockburn

Find a quiet place to escape to and recharge your physical well- being by going for a walk or ride during the day. It may be at lunch time, before or after work, on the weekend or whenever you have a day off. If you walk or ride to work you may be lucky enough to go through a tranquil spot like this on your way to work, rather than being stuck in traffic. Like most people, I prefer the sound of water, wind blowing through the trees and birds singing, rather than traffic noises. Go with a friend and double the fun, but be sure to stop and listen to the birds along the way.

The path around North Lake is mainly rough limestone but fine for walking or for riding a mountain bike. I needed to check out the path for work but have ear-marked it as a local place worth revisiting.

I shared some video footage I took during my walk, with the Cockburn Bicycle User Group to help inspire more people to visit this less well known lake and encourage more people to explore their local area by foot or by bike.

Have a listen to video. Are there similar green places that you like to visit and unwind? Share your favourite spots with your friends and family. It is also a great way to get more people walking and riding. https://www.facebook.com/groups/CoBug/permalink/2154058087960387/

Hi Kylie, It is a lovely location. I am investigating many paths in the City of Cockburn and doing so with other staff from various areas. I aim to share the information with others - who work or live in the area. Some of the BUG members are also staff members.
