It’s always a wonderful thing to find a fantastic new playground. Here’s one that was new for the third edition of Sydney For Under Fives. It’s in a wonderful central location, great for meeting with friends who live all over Sydney.
And just look at that great flying fox, just awesome for bold little souls.
Buffalo Creek Reserve Playground
Pittwater Road, East Ryde 2113
This is a fantastic space and playground, lots of open grassy areas and really good equipment. The piéce de rèsistance is a very long flying fox set just a bit up the hill from the main play area.
The playground has a huge shadecloth covering all of it, and everything our under fives might require including twist slides, spicas, monkey bars, swings. There’s also a large wooden cubby house nearby.
There are shaded picnic tables and nearby is a large sports oval, excellent if you have older children who like to kick a ball.
There is a good bike track as well so don’t forget the bikes and trikes.

Mum’s report: A lovely spot, there are good bushwalks in Buffalo Creek Reserve too. The traffic noise from Pittwater Road is sometimes a bit loud, depends on the day and time. Excellent for adventurous kids.
Extra: There is a nice boardwalk here through the mangroves. It is part of the Great North Walk, and you can walk for a long way north or south from here. See http://www.thegreatnorthwalk.com/
