One of the best playgrounds on the North Shore

This is a great park / playground, maybe even the best on Sydney’s North Shore. With a big walking path circling the open flat park, a coffee shop and playground it ticks all the boxes. 

Initially when I heard about it I struggled to work out where it is because people refer to it as Flying Fox playground but it is actually called Winnererremy Bay Park or Winnererremy Bay Foreshore Reserve. The address you can use for your GPS is 2 Mona Street, Mona Vale, 2103.  

The parkland itself is lovely and flat with a big looping walkway around it. Its a great place for a picnic with the trees and the permanent umbrellas. We have been there a couple of times but the pictures below are of when I took the kids last winter so the sun was setting early. Sorry for the poor quality of the pics, I hope you can get the gist of it.

If you want to explore a bit more, across a bridge over the water into the wooded area along the water. This seems to be where people who don’t have a crazy 3 year old on a bike who is trying to kill himself get to walk – between him and the pram we didn’t get far.

The playground is big and has a ton of different aspects to explore: slides, swings, climbing sets and a small zip line (well I think it’s a zip line) and those bouncy things with the spring. There are climbing frames for little kids and bigger pre-schoolers. Below is a picture of one of the playground areas which is a ship, loved by all boys I can assure you.

The playground floor is that soft stuff which means a fall isn’t as hard as it could be and has seating inside with plenty of shady areas too should you find yourself there in the middle of the day.

The adjacent cafe is open from 8 am to 5:30 so you can take the kids down in the morning or afternoon and still be able to grab a coffee.

I would definitely recommend a visit!
