Manly Lagoon Reserve Playground - Manly - Sydney - Review

The Manly Lagoon Reserve playground is a great size playground for little ones and the best thing, it's close to Manly beach and two North Steyne playgrounds (our review here) so grab the kids' scooter/bike and beach gear!

This playground has everything and we love that it's well shaded in main areas. Kids will love the large climbing structure, the two sets of twin baby swings and twin older kids swings, a little structure with sand play and slide, a baby/toddler area with little slide, lots of seating and areas to have a drink and some food as well as a ferry, a racing car and another bigger structure with slide and climbing topped with a bike and scooter track around.

We love this fully fenced playground which is close to the Langoon Park where people bring their dogs for a play in the water however I wouldn't recommend it as at times the water is very dirty.

There is parking around the Manly Lagoon Reserve playground as well as along Manly's North Steyne strip. There is also a milk bar and burger & chips place near the playground. But the best bit it's its close proximity to Manly beach and the two North Steyne playgrounds. I took little Mister and his bike down from the Manly Lagoon Reserve, through both playgrounds on the North Steynes and he was exhausted after but slept well that day ha! Enjoy this great playground this weekend.
