A great boardwalk area, colourful and well maintained. GASP - I didn't read the signs properly on our first visit but did this time. Suddenly things made a bit more sense to me. There is a large parking area, from there you walk past a bird area where I spotted at least 8 different types of birds.
There is an interesting art display in the water. Not sure it was working according to the info on the wall.
There is also a very nice shelter if the weather should go bad.

It was a good walk with fine views of the Derwent River valley, Mount Wellington and MONA. Some interesting features and the colourful bridges. The ground is still a bit barren on the walk to Wilkinsons Point, which will improve with some mature planting, or more artwork. Disappointed how dirty the pavilion at Wilkinson Point was, needs some more care! Overall, worth the visit.

I hav been a couple of times to walk over tehe bridge and admire the colouful wooden panels. Unfortunately there is little to see which needs to improve with a bite more artwork. The pavillon needs some cleanup as there i a lot of birds poo. Also there are no public toilets, at least I did not see any conveniences. Still the bridges are unique and worth th visit.

We rode bikes out here from Hobart as tourists. I couldn't see any sculptures or art (apart from the building on the point) and the open areas need some trees. Just not that amazing, there are much better places in Hobart

It's close to and on the way to MONA so it's not a huge effort to get here but other than that, there is little to see or do than have a pleasant walk across the bridge.

Its a nice, easy walk along the shoreline. Start at the Park alongside the High School and walk to the end on the River Derwent. Very easy, flat and delightful. The local Council have done an excellent job with this. The views are lovely and the people one meets during the walk are invariably polite and friendly. The total distance is around 3 Km.

We went along the Glenorchy Art and Sculpture Park quite late one afternoon, when the wind was up and it was quite cold! Our two children enjoyed the playground at the west end of the walk, despite being almost too old for it. The walk itself was pleasant, though it will improve as the vegetation grows up; however, we saw plenty of water birds along the way and enjoyed the views of the Derwent and Mount Wellington. We did not notice much sculpture or art... maybe we missed something in the growing gloom?

From the moment the first phase of this walk opened we began using it. While living in Glenorchy we started at the Yacht Club end and walked towards Hobart CBD. After moving further South out of Glenorchy we began parking at The Derwent Park Entertainment Center which is closer to the entertainment area at the point. The area at the point is of Historical interest as it was used during the construction of the Tasman Bridge. There are toilets at the point and fresh water which is especially designed for thirsty dogs. The bays along the GASP walk teem with wild water birds and the whole area has been planted with indigenous grasses, succulents and reeds. It seems incredible now that this well utilised amenity had been vociferously opposed by some Aldermen. The walk is flat and sections over parts of rough terrain have wooden bridges built to keep walkers dry and safe. There is also a Barbecue area about half way along. This walk is well maintained and a credit to Glenorchy.

GASP is a large well maintained open parkland, playground, bike and walking tracks, wetlands and bird habitat. Situated on the banks of the Derwent River at Elwick Bay about 10 mins north of Hobart by car and 40 mins by bike for those more enthusiastic. I first went here in 2015 in June where the weather was very cool and blustery, overcast and rainy and was still a joy to experience. Went back this last summer and rode my mountain bike around the shared elevated bike and walking paths, riding over the water at high tide was a thrill. The views to the mountains and the other side of the Derwent River are a sight to be seen. Lovely for a weekend out with the family.
