Berry Reserve Playground at Narrabeen really is a splendid play space, especially for toddlers and preschoolers. The play equipment is excellent, with wonderful activities to encourage creative play.
AND the playground is right beside the fabulous Tramshed Cafe, and close to Narrabeen Lagoon with its terrific walking and cycling track. You could also make a visit to beautiful Bilarong Playground and make it a two-playground day-long outing.
Just cross the drawbridge and you are in. This playground is fully enclosed and by a solid wall rather than just a fence. This is wise as the playground is close to a car park and road, and to the lake, so it needs to be super safe.
