Leichhardt Park is located beside the premier function centre Le Montage and so there is a large amount of waterfront parking available. This is enough of a reason to choose this park, especially at busier times. The large parking space is beneficial for families with young children and also for less mobile people as they don't have to go far along the bay for views.
The spot is popular with seniors as there are benches close to the water, for looking out over the bay and reflecting.
Leichardt Park has a nice neat playground for young children, and right beside it is a varied selection of adult gym equipment. You can see a lot of this sort of equipment around the Inner West, but this is definitely one of the better setups. Not only is it covered by a sunshade but it is also close enough to the children's play area that parents can workout while their children play.
There is plenty of space along the seawall to enjoy the scenery, and the green space is popular for couples with picnic baskets.There is also a backdrop of greenery that nicely contrasts with the blue vista of Iron Cove.
