North Harbour Reserve - Balgowlah - Sydney - Review

The North Harbour reserve playground in Balgowlah is a popular playground for families for a play date, a run on the scooter or bike or for a picnic or birthday party. Due to families concern regarding the playground close to a busy road and the water, council made the playground fully fenced and are currently undergoing renovations for the toilets onsite.

The playground consists of a main structure with climbing spots, slides, monkey bars and more. There are also dizzy sticks, bouncers and a large see saw. There is also a double swing and a swing for all abilities. Kids can also use their scooter or bike within the playground. There’s also lots of benches too.

There is a nice reserve near the playground where families are often seen throwing birthday parties, playing sport or walking the dog. There’s also a café next to the playground for refreshments, biscuit, ice cream or a coffee.
