This is one of the Manly area’s finest, a great favourite with locals and well worth travelling to visit.
Lagoon Park Playground
Cameron Avenue, Queenscliff 2096
Website: www.manly.nsw.gov.au, Attractions, Playgrounds
There is plenty of modern playground equipment, including swings and a spider web climbing frame, plus a sandpit.
Some paths inside the playground are good for bikes and there are more paths outside the playground, but beware of the lagoon which is not fenced.
Nearest takeaway coffee: Milk bar on Collingwood Street
Toilets: Toilet block outside the playground, by Queenscliff Bridge
Shade: A shadecloth over some equipment and from trees, but not a lot
Mum’s report: Well worth a visit, Manly Lagoon makes the playground scenic and the fence makes it safe. The playground is very big and has lots of interesting stuff for the kids.
Extra: The playground is at one end of the Manly Four Beaches walk

I still get a thrill out of a visit to a great Sydney playground. I’ve been doing it for 18 years or so. Am I sad loser??
