Big, wide-open spaces like public parks are great for social distancing. In these trying times, when public health is a critical global issue, experts said that it’s better to be outdoors, in Bardon parks, than indoors only if you’re planning to enjoy some time for recreation.

Bardon is fortunate to have heaps of public parks where you can relax, embrace the scenery in peace and lower your stress levels. Here are five beautiful parks in this suburb to visit and enjoy some social distancing.

1. Norman Buchan Park

Location: 53 Rainworth Road 

This is a dog-friendly park with plenty of shade trees, a large grassy area and a cemented path for disability access. There is a set of play equipment for children (be sure to sanitise with alcohol!) and ample amenities like clean toilets, undercover seating, water stations and parking.

2. Rainworth Park

Location: 67 Main Ave

This is a smaller park with an abundance of shaded areas. It’s perhaps the best place to do your daily exercises or read a book in a cool setting, while social distancing, as this park isn’t designed for big get-togethers. There is, however, a small jungle gym for kids.

3. Colorado Avenue Park

Location: 81 Fifth Avenue

This is another tiny park with a single walking track next to a creek. If you’d like to enjoy a morning walk or a late afternoon romp without fear of getting lost in the bushland, check this site out. There are no other facilities in this park.

4. Sunset Park

Location: 105 Barnett Road

An off-leash dog area (for small dogs only), this park also has a BMX facility for teens and kids. It’s close to Bardon Esplanade Park by the road reserve, where there are plenty of trees but no facilities. Thus, you can walk and exercise to your heart’s delight around these sites.

5. Purtell Park

57 Carwoola Street

Sports activities dominate this park but it’s big and spacious so you can enjoy the scenery in peace, especially during the early evenings. Occasionally, you may spot some kookaburras here. Dogs are welcome, too.
