Don’t you just love it when your playground has a makeover? It’s almost as good as having a mum makeover yourself? Umm… maybe not!
This is one of our very favourite local playgrounds. My little ones are loving it even more since it was revamped. We’re here a lot at the weekend when the big boys play league on the sports fields so it’s fab that it’s such a great spot.
Lionel Watts Reserve Playground
Blackbutts Road, Frenchs Forest 2086

Another excellent playground from Warringah Council, this one has a bushy feel with large trees casting acres of shade.
The play equipment is spread out and a path weaves from area to area, making it ideal for bikes and trikes.
There are junior and senior play structures, swings, picnic tables and barbecues inside the playground, a dry creek with a little wooden bridge and the essential swings.
Nearest takeaway coffee: BYO
Toilets: Toilets to east side of playground, beside dog park pavilion.
Shade: Lots of natural shade
Mum’s report: My son loves the play structures, whizzing around the paths on his scooter and playing tea parties in the cubby house. This is a good place to meet up with friends for a picnic. Great too when the older boys are playing matches at Lionel Watts.
Extra: Close to a small shopping centre and to the Glen Street Theatre.
