Steamrolling fun
Just on the outskirts of Lane Cove, boarding Riverview, is a wonderful little forgotten park, Marjorie York Reserve, formerly known as Apex Park

Apex Park, as it was formerly known as, was purchased in 1962, from Mr and Mrs R York. In 1999, it was renamed Marjorie York Reserve, to honour her 100th birthday. The shops are at York's Corner, and The Apex Club of Lane Cove provided the original equipment, hence the name Apex, one of their purchases was a steamroller that is still here today.

After a few upgrades of equipment over the years, the steamroller is still in pristine condition and I'm thankful I can share this rare opportunity of clambering over a steamroller, with my child, reliving childhood memories.

They have separated the areas, for safe playing according to age and ability. The Steamroller area is for all ages and the big kids area offers great climbing, wooden plank crossings and a swing-like apparatus, that forces interaction as it takes two to operate.

The picnic area has tables and chairs and it's all fenced in to keep your little ones safe. There is a cafe near the Lane Cove Toy Library, so you can sip a coffee, relax while enjoying watching your children have fun in this beaut park.
