Passmore Reserve + Playground at Manly Vale

Passmore Reserve has been one of our favourite ovals-with-an-excellent-playground for years.

There’s heaps of space all around, Passmore Reserve is huge with lots of playing fields and tracks that are great for bikes and trikes.

And we love the bushy feel of the fully enclosed playground at Passmore reserve. With lots of wooden play structures and plenty of space for exploring, it’s a playground where kids’ imaginations, as well as their little bodies, can run wild and free.

Passmore Reserve Playground

Campbell Parade, Manly Vale 2093

This terrific, large playground has been landscaped with so many different areas that it’s hard to decide what to do first.

There is a small bike track just by the main entrance, a forest area which children love to explore, barbecue and picnic tables, a bridge and a fantastic wooden wall.

Play equipment includes a junior play structure with cubbies and a senior play structure with a rope climbing frame and other adventurous stuff. There are several swings too. And don’t forget the BBQs and tables and the marvellous feeling of being in the bush!

This is a terrific playground for playing hide and seek, there are so many areas to hide away. Yet it’s still fully fenced – superb!

There is artwork throughout the playground too.

Passmore Reserve itself has playing fields are within a wide sealed walkway which is good for a legstretching walk or for cycling.

Nearest Coffee: BYO

Toilets:  By the playground

Shade: Plenty from shadecloth and trees

Enclosed: Yes, and it needs to be as there is a section of Manly Lagoon right beside the playground, so little kids must be kept in the playground to be safe.

Mum’s report: This is the family’s most favourite playground in the whole of Sydney. It’s large, with so much equipment as well as the natural bushy areas to explore. The children love the big dry creek.
