Newport Beach Playground
The Newport Beach Playground is now a decent enclosed playground!
This playground has had a complete overhaul in the last year, making it one of the nicest along the Northern Beaches beachfronts.
Where is Newport Beach
Newport is one of the most northern beaches, its north of Mona Vale so it’s closer to Palm Beach than it is to Dee Why.
The Playground is just off Barrenjoey Road, Newport. You can put Barrenjoey Road, Newport into your GPS or Newport Beach. You’ll need to start looking out for the playground on your right, after you hit 369 Barrenjoey Road, Newport.
I got the parking wrong last time we visited and parked behind the strip of shops that front on to Barrenjoey You can park here, it’s just not right adjacent to the playground.
To get to the best parking go beyond the playground and turn left into the parking lot. Drive around to the Surf Lifesaving Club and then park between it and the playground.
Newport Beach Playground Features
It has a massive bus structure for the kids to climb on, with a ramp for kids in wheelchairs, a climbing wall at the back and climbing net next to a slide at the side. It has steering wheels and different levels to play on. I reckon this is the feature of the playground. It’s made out of that same board material that the new car structures at Manly Lagoon playground are made out of.
For slightly older more adventurous but stable kids is a climbing structure with a net rings and poles. I’m not doing a great job of explaining it so rather have a look at the picture below.
The other big draw card, although small in size is the little trampoline. It’s tiny but brings great joy.
There are the standard four swings, two for older kids and two for babies.
An all inclusive roundabout and basket swing makes it a playground for all kids!
Newport Beach Playground Facilities
There are two big shade sails and tall trees on the periphery.
There are a few picnic tables and benches dotted around the playground.
It is pretty open to the elements so be prepared for wind and sun exposure.
There are BBQ facilities under cover just outside the playground.
There are lots of great beach playgrounds on the Northern Beaches. Here is a list of some other good playgrounds in that area.
