Steyne Park

Published 6 July 2020

Our playgrounds are open for business once again, so make the most of the winter sunshine and take the kids to one of these splendid play spots these school holidays.

Remember to practice good personal hygiene (BYO hand sanitiser) and keep social distancing requirements in mind. Stay at home if you're unwell.

1. Lyne Park playground, Rose Bay

This lovely harbourside playground is one of the most popular in our local area. Kids will love watching the seaplanes take off while cutting laps on the flying fox. Other playground features include an activity net, swings, animal rockers, slides and imaginative play areas such as a fantasy house and a sea coaster vessel. It’s also fully fenced, making it perfect for little runners.

2. Parsley Bay playground, Vaucluse

This new all abilities playground is set amongst the lush surrounds of Parsley Bay Reserve. It features integrated wheelchair play equipment, a ‘pod swing’, slides, a jungle gym and a play ship called Shirase, a nod to the Japanese Antarctic expedition team who sought shelter in Parsley Bay in 1911 after battling treacherous weather.

Another popular harbourside play spot, the Rushcutters Bay playground is great for little ones as it’s fully fenced and features a series of fun ocean themed play equipment, including a small sail boat. There’s also a cafĂ© next door for adults to get a much-needed caffeine fix.
