Sydney’s Best Playgrounds- Lagoon Park, Manly

Lagoon Park and its excellent playground in Manly is a top spot for a family visit. It is a great favourite with locals and for other Sydneysiders, it is well worth making a journey to visit.

One of the nicest things about this playground is that there are all sorts of walks to do either on the way to it, or from it. There’s also the lovely Queenscliff beach and rock pool a short walk away.

Manly Lagoon Reserve Playground

Cameron Avenue, Queenscliff 2096

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. The playground itself is securely fenced but once outside the playground, the lagoon is very close by.

Some of the equipment is showing its age, but it’s still a top spot for tots in Manly

I still get a thrill out of a visit to a great Sydney playground.  

Even after decades!

Am I sad loser??
