Fred Smith Reserve Circuit
Starting from the dirt car park off Marine Parade, Hastings, this circuit walk gives you a tour of the Fred Smith Reserve, mostly via the Western Port Bay Trail. This accessible journey offers lovely views of the bay along with heaps of features such as an extensive leash-free oval, playgrounds, fitness stations, BBQs, a heated indoor pool, and a cafe with more views for you to enjoy. The flora and fauna of the area are interesting as well, especially the pelicans. Keep in mind that the only place you can get your dog off the leash is the oval, all other parts are on-leash areas (including the tracks). Please refrain from getting into the mangroves or the salt marsh to preserve the environment and wildlife. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
