Sydney’s Best Playgrounds- Lionel Watts, Frenchs Forest

This is one of our family’s very favourite local playgrounds.  We spent years and years playing here and I miss it now my kids have grown out of playgrounds,

We were here a lot at the weekends when the big boys play league on the sports fields too so it’s fab that it’s such a great spot.

Lionel Watts Reserve Playground

Blackbutts Road, Frenchs Forest 2086

Another excellent playground from Warringah Council, this one has a bushy feel with large trees casting acres of shade.

The play equipment is spread out and a path weaves from area to area, making it ideal for bikes and trikes.

There are junior and senior play structures, swings, picnic tables and barbecues inside the playground, a dry creek with a little wooden bridge and the essential swings.

Nearest takeaway coffee: BYO

Toilets: Toilets to east side of playground, beside dog park pavilion.

Shade: Lots of natural shade

Enclosed: Yes

Mum’s report: My son loves the play structures, whizzing around the paths on his scooter and playing tea parties in the cubby house. This is a good place to meet up with friends for a picnic. Great too when the older boys are playing matches at Lionel Watts.

Extra: Close to Glenrose Shopping Centre and to the Glen Street Theatre.

Parking: Carpark beside the playground
