Parks Jenkins Reserve 01

Jenkins Reserve


Close to the city centre and other recreational reserves along the Little Para River, Jenkins Reserve offers a fully enclosed dog-friendly play park in which your dog may run free and unrestrained. Dogs will love exploring the smells and playing on the jumps, steps, tunnels, slippery dip and drinking trough with pergola. Shaded seating is provided for dog owners.

Originally the ground of Fenden Grove the land was once an extensive orange grove and vineyard, named after the pioneering Jenkins Family.

A walking bridge across the river gives access from both sides of the reserve while a quick trip down the Little Para Walking Trail will lead to the Harry Bowey reserve. Here you will find playgrounds, sporting activities and barbeque needs.

Those using wheelchairs have some unassisted access but it can be very awkward in parts.

The gates to the car park are closed at sunset.
