Passmore Reserve - Manly Vale - Sydney - Review

The Passmore Reserve is located off Campbell Parade in Manly Vale. It is a great spot for a bike/scooter ride, a play in the playground, a game of sports, catching up with friends and family, to throw a bbq or birthday party and enjoy. Photos updated September 2018.

Little Miss and little Mister enjoy riding their bikes on the children's bike track which is also great for a relaxing walk or some exercise around the oval. Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon!

The playground has a baby and toddler area with two baby swings and a basket swing, a little slide, springer, musical tower, pirate boat with slide and climbing structures around it and a double dolphin bouncer.

There is also another area for older kids, with two sings, a little merry go round, a slide, some little intercoms and a large climbing structure with all sorts of climbing opprotuntites.

We love the Passmore Reserve and playground, what a fab spot! Love the good amount of shading over the playground too, perfect for the warmer months! This playground is fully fenced around which is great for escape artists especially as it is close to a river which has no fencing so be mindful for little ones wondering around the water to see ducks.
