Don’t you just love that park bench? I once gave it a post all of its own.
But today it’s just a teaser for the many joys of Shelley Park playground in Cronulla.
In the winter it’s well worth a visit just for the playground, in summer there’s the lovely beach, the rock pool and the large park to enjoy as well.
Shelly Beach Playground
Ewos Parade Cronulla 2230
Sea views, picnic tables and BBQs, shade from beautiful trees and a lovely baths nearby—what more could a family desire?
There is lots of sand softfall in this playground, and a huge boat-shaped sandpit. There are swings, including a Liberty Swing, climbing frames, music makers, rockers and a roundabout.
Come for a long time, and for a good time, it’s a southern Sydney family favourite.
