Clontarf Reserve - Sydney

The Clontarf Reserve is located off Sandy Bay Road in Clontarf.


It is a great spot for families with areas for a picnic or bbq, it has a small fenced off area for little swimmers and a great size playground and a little café.


If you haven't been before, make sure you introduce your child to the swimming area so that they are familiar with how deep or shallow it is. 


The grass is a bit worse for wears so bring some picnic equipment such as chairs, picnic blankets etc. There are a bbq onsite as well as some benches and tables however it does get busy at times so best be prepared. 


The playground is situated right next to the water and is great for kids of all ages. It has two sets of swings, lots of climbing structures, two types of slides as well as a boat and a little structure for little ones to play in.
