Picturesque Reserve and Playground Near the Little Para River
Close to the city centre and other recreational reserves along the Little Para River, Harry Bowey Reserve is a great place for a family day out or special event. Shaded barbecue and picnic areas and public toilets make it ideal for entertaining.
Harry Bowey Reserve features a junior playground where there are rope climbs, a twin flying fox, a cricket pitch and two steel-net tennis courts provide sporting choices for children.
Large walking bridges over the nearby Little Para River can be followed east to Carisbrooke Park, across the river to Boundary Park or west to Jenkins Reserve. Trails run through this tree-filled reserve and aid unassisted access for those using wheelchairs.
Car parking is provided but the gates to the car park are closed at sunset.
