Around the Block: Anti-clockwise

At the end of the block, by the river, is a nature reserve called ‘Caesars Place’.

Once upon a time this reserve was a horse paddock and a lovely old fellow called Caesar resided here. Each afternoon he would amble up to the fence to greet the children on their way home from school. Caesar was a neighbourhood favourite.

These days Caesar is long gone. The council resumed the land for public use and partnered with a local bush care group to revegetate the area. I’m glad that they chose to name the reserve after him.

It’s a lovely tranquil spot and in all the times I’ve been here I’ve never encountered anyone else.  I don’t think too many people realise that, tucked away behind the bushes,  there’s a lovely little picnic spot with a view of the river where it’s possible to forget that you’re in a noisy city.
