Stan Windon Memorial Playground - Coogee - Sydney - Australia

Maroubra Mumma Lauren recently shared with us one of her children’s favourite playground in Coogee, the Stan Windon Memorial Playground (Grant Reserve). Thank you Lauren for the great review and pics. To follow Lauren’s adventures on Instagram, head to her page @maroubra_mumma xo Catherine

Situated perfectly along the famous ‘Coastal Walk’, this park is a pleaser for both the kiddies and parents. Although in need of some TLC it’s still a popular haunt for Eastern Suburbs families and a great morning out.

The playground is split into three zones for kids to explore. You will find typical park necessities of swings, slides and climbing towers. But the kids will be fascinated with the musical noise makers, sandstone sundials and not to mention an extra-large (7.5 metre high) climbing net in the shape of a ship mask.

Although not a fenced space it is mostly a flat playground making it easy for parents to supervise while taking in the beautiful view of Coogee’s Wedding Cake Island.

With an abundance of natural shade from large old trees this park also has sunshade sails to protect the little ones. This spot is perfect for kids of all ages and the rubber flooring is ideal for crawlers.

Whilst in the area don’t forget to explore the popular Wylies and McIvers Baths situated just across from the park. 

If in need of a snack or coffee take a short stroll down to Barzura Café or wonder up  to Coogee Bay Road to explore local eateries (Melon Head Smoothie Bar, Coogee Café of Merivales Pavillion.)
