Lyne Park

Lyne Park

Lyne Park is a large Sydney Harbour foreshore park with a diverse range of recreation opportunities including a basketball court and public tennis courts. The park has large grassed areas, shady trees for picnics and a café. It provides access to Rose Bay boat ramp, a commercial seaplane base, and public and commercial ferry services. Public access to the water for non-motorised watercraft is available via the boat ramp beside Woollahra Sailing Club.

The large playground is very popular for families with children. It has both natural and sail shade and includes areas of organic and rubber softfall. The playground features an activity net, a steel cable flying fox, traditional swings, animal rockers, slides and imaginative play units such as a fantasy house and a sea coaster vessel.

Reclaimed from tidal sand flats in 1902 to form a 14 acre (5.6 ha.) reserve named in honour of Sir William Lyne, the N.S.W. Premier from 1899 to 1901. In 1905, 8 acres (3.2 ha.) at the east end was revoked for use as a recreation oval for the Navy. In 1938, a flying boat base was established on this ground - the first flight to England leaving 5 July , 1938 (Short 'Empire' class, Cooee, VH-ABF). The last commercial flight was on 10 September, 1974 to Lord Howe Island. The base was subsequently demolished and returned to parkland.
