Hillarys Park, Lymburner Dr

Lots of twisting roads to untangle in Hillarys at this weekend's MetrO: and not just horizontal directions to consider! Weather looks fantastic however, with a top of just 29°C forecast. Would still be great for a dip in the ocean before or after your run if you are so inclined.
