We love this Collaroy Beach playground! We adore it for its views, its space and the very happy family memories it has given us.
Collaroy Beach playground was one of the first playgrounds we visited after returning to Sydney with a wild toddler in tow. We had been living in Karachi, and I’m telling you there were no playgrounds by the sea like this at all.
We couldn’t believe how fabulous the Sydney playgrounds were! And this was one we spent hours and hours in.
Collaroy Beach playground has the most excellent equipment, with a real focus on being an inclusive, all-abilities playground.

There is such a wonderful collection of equipment in this playground. Check out my photos to see what’s there.
Our faves are the new rope climbing frame, the water play area and the large flat swings. The artworks that dot the playground are lovely for us parents to look at and great fun for the kids to play on and around too.
The playground has a view of the beach and ocean, and it gets a cooling sea breeze.
There are plenty of benches as well as picnic tables and there are gas BBQs inside and outside the playground. There is a grassy area to play outside the playground too, but it is close to the road.
See lots of photos below.
Nearest coffee: Cafes on Pittwater Road, and a it’s just a quick walk along the beach to the revamped Pelican Pavilion, read review here.
Toilets: Public toilets, showers and change rooms at the surf-lifesaving club just north of the carpark, entrance on the Pittwater Road side of the building
Shade: Shadecloth provides plenty of shade
Extra: Lovely beach and safe toddler pool and beach area, see Collaroy Beach post.
Mum’s report: A fantastic playground to be visited again and again. The kids never get bored of it and nor do we. It’s good to have the bike track within the enclosed park area.
