How on earth do you pronounce “Winnererremy’??
For years, I’ve been putting that question in the too hard basket and arranging to meet friends at the Flying Fox playground at Mona Vale.
The cafe next door is called The Flying Fox cafe, so let’s keep it simple.
Winnererremy Bay Playground and Park AKA Flying Fox Playground
Mona Street Mona Vale (see map below)

A terrific spot both for kids and their wranglers. There is a truly huge playground and, hooray, completely fenced.
Older children will adore the more adventurous play area with its long flying fox, large spider’s web climber and cool skateboard-like play equipment.
There’s an area for younger children, with boat-shaped play structure and other equipment.
There is heaps of shade, spicas, spring rockers, snakes and ladders games; it’s really got the lot.
Outside the playground is a lovely sculpture walkway with lots of sand play areas—it is very beautiful, as are the water views.
In the parkland, an oval bike track makes a great learner cycleway and is also challenging enough to satisfy older siblings. There are picnic shelters and BBQs, and the cafe right alongside.
GREAT spot for picnics and BBQs!
Only caveat: there are often bigger kids at the playground so you need to keep your eye on the little ones. Also the pretty waters of Pittwater lap the park. so you have to be really careful of young kids and bolters when outside the playground. The Cafe isn’t childproof and the water is very close.

Mum’s report: Just fantastic, this is the sort of place you can meet up with lots of families and all ages of kids will have a good time, not to mention the mums, dads, aunts, uncles, grannies and grandpas.
There is heaps of space to play cricket or kick a footie ball, and the equipment for the kids is seriously fantastic.
