Why You Should Visit King Edward Park in Newcastle

October 4, 2016
Bather's Way

October long weekend has just passed and with it the end of Patrick’s soccer season. YAY! Patrick’s team the Edgeworth Eagles, did not win this weekend, but they are now the 2nd best semi-professional soccer team in all of Australia! Way to go boys! Moving on to the good parts… meaning that we actually got to spend some time together over the holiday weekend.

I was hoping Monday would be sunny and warm, but instead, it chose to be windy and cloudy. After having a much-needed sleep in Patrick and I decided to go for a nice long walk on Bather’s way and through King Edward Park. I feel that King Edward Park does not get as much recognition as it should by most tourists in the area, and I hope to rectify that by letting people see some pretty awesome photos from our walk and convincing them to put King Edward Park on their list of to do’s when visiting Newcastle.

Here is the map of our route starting at the top of a street called The Terrace (weird I know who names a street that?) on Bather’s way up and around and back through Kind Edward Park.

Here are the amazing views from Monday morning’s walk! Enjoy and get ready to add King Edward Park to your list places to see!

The part of Bather’s way that connects King Edward Park to Newcastle Beach is under construction at the moment so we drove over to Newcastle Beach and got an ice cream at Kiwi Waffle N’ Cones Ice cream and sat on the benches by the beach! The ice cream was sooo good and I didn’t even feel bad about eating it at 10:30 in the morning 🙂 If you go to Newcastle Beach be sure to get a great summer treat at Kiwi Waffle N’ Cones Ice Cream Parlour.
