This waterside park is located approximately five minutes walk from Tempe Station (see map), which is served by a half-hourly Sydney Trains service between Central and Waterfall/Cronulla on the Illawarra Line. The park offers shady places to sit and watch the trains crossing the Cooks River on the nearby rail bridge. The best time to visit this location is after lunch in Spring/Summer/Autumn, when the late is favorable for side-on shots of north and southbound trains. The best time to visit this park is without a doubt when southern line freight trains are being diverted to run via East Hills, as there is plenty of variety. On "normal" days, it is possible to get photos of Pacific National coal, grain and quarry trains running between Enfield and Wollongong.
On 30 May 1915 Lavender Bay railway station was opened to take the place of Milsons Point railway station. This only lasted for seven weeks, as passengers refused to alight here and demanded that trains stop at Milsons Point. During the harbour bridge construction, Lavender Bay Station was the terminus for the North Shore Line. The area is now railway storage sidings.
