Grant Reserve Coogee Playground is a spectacular place for children to play at, have fun, climb, learn and be at the helm of a make believe ship whilst looking over the sea.

The play area south of Coogee Beach is designed to resemble a ship moored to a jetty, with colourful pylons, decks, moorings, a 7.5 metre high net representing the ship's mast and climbing robes for pretend pirates to jump on board.

The three set circular design has a range of play equipment from a climbing web, a mini sandstone sundial covered with animal images, sloping climbing wall, slippery slides, a raised mini sandpit, swings and a boat shaped structure to wobble in.

The playground is designed with safety and comfort in mind with raised, shaded seating surrounding the play area for parents to watch from. The ground is soft with rubber softfall and the slides build in to a slope to ensure no falls.

The play area features interactive and interpretive features for sound and touch, surrounded by grass, trees and a sea view with an amenities block, picnic tables and barbecue facilities close by.

The Eastern Beaches Coastal Walk passes next to the playground offering great views over Coogee Beach. Grant Reserve's green oval and rotunda is the next stop, the path continues on to Trenerry Reserve along the way to Maroubra Beach.

If the children have worked up a sweat and parents / carers feel like a dip adjacent to the playground is McIvers Baths an ocean beach with restricted access to women and children only and further around is the larger, picturesque Wylies Baths that welcomes all.

There are cafes nearby, Barzura Cafe is the closest for baby chinos.
