The Flying Fox Playground at Winnererremy Bay Park, Mona Vale

Have you visited the Flying Fox playground at Mona Vale?  It’s a terrific place for get togethers, there’s so much space to play as well as the excellent fenced playground.

Plus the Flying Fox Cafe is right beside the playground.

NB People often think that the name of the wider park here is Flying Fox Park but its real name is Winnererremy Bay Park, in fact.

We’ve usually come here to meet up with friends, from school, from our youth, from all over Sydney. This playground, and the park, has got lots of different things for all ages.

The views here are lovely and there’s heaps of space to play games in the park and by the water. Luckily the playground itself is fenced, but there is water around the park itself so keep an eye on your tiny terrors.

Address: Winnererremy Bay Playground and Park, Mona Street, Mona Vale 

Flying Fox Park Mona Vale is a terrific spot both for kids and their wranglers. There is a truly huge playground and, hooray, it is completely fenced.

Older children will adore the more adventurous play area with its long flying fox, large spider’s web climber and cool skateboard-like play equipment.

There’s an area for younger children, with boat-shaped play structure and other equipment. There is heaps of shade, spicas, spring rockers, snakes and ladders games; it’s really got the lot.

The variety of playground equipment is good

Outside the playground is a lovely sculpture walkway with lots of sand play areas — it is very beautiful, as are the water views.

In the park itself an oval bike track makes a great learner cycleway and is also challenging enough to satisfy older siblings. There are picnic shelters and BBQs, and the cafe right alongside.

GREAT spot for picnics and BBQs!

Only caveat: there are often bigger kids at the playground so you need to keep your eye on the little ones.  Also the pretty waters of Pittwater lap the park so you have to be really careful of young kids and bolters when outside the playground. The Cafe isn’t childproof and the water is very close.
