Lane Cove National Park

Originally known as the Lane Cover River Park the area was renamed Lane Cove National Park in 1992. Lane Cove National Park is about 10 km from Sydney's CBD. It extends to the outskirts of Pennant Hills and Wahroonga and also consists of the land near the banks of the Lane Cove River. The central section of the park was set aside in the 1920 for picnic areas between the bush and the river banks. In the 1930s a weir was constructed which converted the middle section of the river from tidal salt water to fresh water with a constant depth which was suitable for recreational purposes. A fish ladder was put in place next to the weir to enable the breed of the Australian bass. The park is a haven for a wide variety of flora and fauna
