Walter Gors Park - Dee Why - Sydney - Review

The Walter Gors Park in Dee Why is a popular spot for local families with a great playground, water play spots and plenty of room for the kids to run around on the grass or have a picnic and relax. Revamped in 2017, it is a great looking playground which little Mister was more than happy to explore!

The playground’s large and smaller cubbies are great for little ones to climb around, slide down the slides and explore.

There are plenty of sitting spots for families to sit down and relax as well as two ping pong tables, a public toilets right next to the playground for convenience and a cool water play spot. We didn’t expect to find the water turned on that day so little Mister was soaked but had lots of fun meeting new friends. Note to self: pack spare clothes next time ha!

The Walter Gors Park is a great spot for the family to explore and have fun and perfect for the warmer months with the water play spots. There is no shade over the playground or the swings and the water play is partly shaded so please keep that in mind for warm days with the slides and also sun protection. Although the playground is set back from the road, please be careful with your little one, I have a good tester with me as he is always wondering off!

There are local shops next door if you fancy a quick bite to eat or spot of groceries.
