is located right next to the St Ives Preparatory School campus of Sydney Grammar School
. However it's not part of the school; it's actually a public facility.
The oval here is used for sports like cricket (in summer) and rugby (in winter). It is the home ground for St Ives Rugby Club
and has a clubhouse next to the Hassell Street entrance, where there is also a parking area (with a very poor surface). Two sets of practice nets, with five individual nets in total, can be found around the oval.
Hidden from the entrance, there is a playground in the corner where Mona Vale Road and Palm Street meet. The equipment is quite simple and includes swings and a slide. Lots of trees and a fence keep kids safe from busy Mona Vale Road too.
takes up an entire block in St Ives, yet there is still quite a lot of bush around its edges. When I read a sign at the playground, I learned this was intentional; it's the remains of Duffy's forest, a woodland that is restricted to Warringah
. You can read more about the forest at the park.
