Wheeler Park is a little playground, fully enclosed and shade overlooking the Narrabeen Lakes. We stumbled upon it but burnt off some serious energy so I’m glad we came across it.
Wheeler Park Playground doesn’t really have an address which is weird considering there is even a car park. If you’re looking for it, you would be best served putting Lakeside, Narrabeen in your GPS. The next three pictures should give you an indication of where it is:
Picture 1: The blue spot in the picture is the covered playground alongside Lakeside Road.
Picture 2: Where Lakeside Road is in relation to other roads / streets in the area (more specifically Mactier Street) and the Lakes.
Picture 3: Where Mactier Street and the Lakes are within the greater Narrabeen area.
The beauty about this little playground is its location:
- It’s on the Narrabeen Lagoon Trail which means you can walk around the Lakes / lagoon a bit with the kids. It’s perfect for prams and trikes.
- There is a cafe (walking North) called Boatshed cafe where you can pick up a coffee / babychinos / smoothie.
- Ducks and geese are abound.
- There are open areas nearby where you can sit and peacefully watch the water (or the people trying their hand at various water sports).
There is street parking all along the Narrabeen Lakes and a little parking lot near the playground. One of the down falls is that there aren’t any toilets which is a bit of a pain if you plan on spending a while there.
