caters for every ability, with a flying fox, swings and a remote control car track. It is superbly designed and well spread out in age and ability play areas.

As you enter the car park that has 42 spaces (yes I counted them), you'll see a large dog park fully fenced off from the playground. There is a shaded sandpit with a boat and water ski and strap. How fantastic, I have never seen a water ski set up before like this.

Can you make it across the crocodile infested swampland to the next sand pit? If you are a mean parent like I am, I shake the ropes so my son falls off and has to start again.

Head across the rubber stumps and enter the next sandpit, which is very popular with sand building and creative ideas emerging as the children enjoy moving the sand from one side to another via a slide.

The hardest decision of the day will be deciding which way to go from the smaller children's playground area, with a wonderful toddler size swing, to see saws and climbing apparatus.

Up the hill is the basketball court and tennis centre. Dog training schools operate in this area. Trails for scooter, bike and walking tracks run through beautiful shrubs, natives plants and indigenous displays.

There is one slide on top of a hill and boy is it fast! Expect to fly off the bottom with quite some speed. Not recommended for adults, you may end in Lane Cove if you do. There are plenty of squeals from this section of the park.

The most popular area of the park is none other than the flying fox. You get quite a whip and are returned just over half way. We saw some children standing on the flying fox, but may I suggest sitting and hanging on for dear life. This was the first time my son had been on a flying fox and I believe we spent over two hours in this section of the park alone. The flying fox also forces interaction between the children as they work together awaiting their turn.

For swing lovers, this area will wow you. There are five swings in a circle. If you time it correctly, you can touch each others toes on a full swing.

The spider web is fantastic for all ages and abilities. The horizontal design is very safe for the not so confident climber.

For those like me that love their remote controlled cars this is your play area. Expect intense jumps, extreme cornering and plenty of action. You are guaranteed an audience in this area of the park.

BBQ some snags or bring a picnic, there is plenty of seating in the undercover areas and enjoy a full day out with friends. This is a wonderful park for a birthday or a large group event. Toilet facilities and bubblers are spread throughout the park.

Ryde Council have truly outdone themselves with this park. Ice cream trucks come and go throughout the day so if you miss one, they will be back within a couple of hours.

is my number one park on the north side of the harbour.
