Pugh's Lagoon - Smith Park

When visiting the historic town of Richmond you will find a pretty spot called Pugh’s Lagoon, located in Smith Park. The quiet lagoon has grassy banks and mature trees. The park is a peaceful recreation space where you can stop for a picnic, try a little fishing and the bird watching is good too.

Pugh’s lagoon is a wetland, and it is home to a many plant and bird species. There is even a flock of ducks who gather there. The park offers barbecue facilities and toilets to make your picnic comfortable.

People following the Hawkesbury Artists trail will also find themselves at Smith Park taking in the scenery and maybe even capturing the setting with an easel and paints. It’s a lovely spot for families, visitors and artists alike.
