It's also a popular fishing spot, and place to "park" your boat.
Facilities are good, including a modern amenities block, fresh water refill station and a small kiosk/cafe for a coffee or smoothie, and light food (croissants, toasties, pies, sausage rolls).
When we visited on 11 January the water was still a little bit murky after recent torrential rains Sydney received, but we were informed that the fish were biting at least for some, and the water was warm and inviting.....swimming was good in the baths enclosure.
It's a popular spot for family picnics (no BBQs provided) and school picnics - lots of space for kids to play.
And, we even came across a poster-child for the National Park.
There is a flat-rate parking fee of $10 for up to 12 hours.

Great to see the Council providing a fresh water refilling station.
|A bit of debris after the recent storms. I got talking to a council worker (see below) and he asked me what the water quality was like.|
Lots of fun to be had jumping off the elevated walkway round the baths enclosure.
|I talked to Deanne for a while; unfortunately the fish weren't biting today for this dedicated fisherwoman|
|Lots of picnic space, and shady areas under trees(more than seen here)|
|Some beautiful art work depicting the marine life to be discovered by snorkellers|
|This man from the Council was affixing a QR code marker as part of the Mosman Walks app|
|Impressive children's playground|
|Where there are children, there are holes to be dug!|
