Sydney’s Best Playgrounds- Lagoon Park, Manly

This is one of the Manly area’s finest, a great favourite with locals and well worth travelling to visit.


Lots of space and shade

Good equipment for all ages

Lagoon Park Playground, Manly

Especially good for toddlers and preschoolers

Lagoon Park Playground

Cameron Avenue, Queenscliff 2096

Website:, Attractions, Playgrounds

This large enclosed playground is beside Manly Lagoon and is lovely and quiet even though it is close to Queenscliff Bridge.

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

Enclosed: Yes

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

Map reference: Gregory’s 288 G4, Sydway 239 K20, UBD 198 B4

Parking: Street parking on Cameron Avenue

Bus stop nearby: Yes

Lots of tracks for riding bikes and trikes

The boat theme suits the area so well since it’s so close to Queenscliff beach

Climbing and chasing around the equipment

Every young boy needs a racing car

The climbing frame is a great favourite

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??
