Glebe, Blackwattle Bay Park

This is one of two walkways in Blackwattle Bay Park, in the inner city suburb of Glebe. The rows of columns extend from the former Glebe Incinerator down to Blackwattle Bay. The promenades are an interpretation of council sheds, designed by Walter Burley Griffin which once stood here as part of his landscaping of the site. At the western end of each steel shed structure is a D-shaped sandstone wall. This southern one seen here is original but the northern one is a new addition, interpreting the lost original. Part of the Sydney skyline can be seen, in the distance.


  1. A really nice spot Jim. Love the repeating pattern of the columns.

  2. Interesting walkway, Jim. But what did they incinerate?

    1. It was all the household rubbish that the local council collected. It created a lot of pollution in the city so eventually the practice was banned.

  3. Rich place to ponder. Nicely shot
