Picnic spot, kids' playground and fitness junkie paradise
Whether you're a fitness fanatic, a parent of young kids, or just looking for a grassy spot in the shade, Naremburn Park has everything you need.



Located just a few hundred metres from the high rise office buildings of St Leonards, this leafy park has a little something for everyone, especially kids. Tucked away in one of the lower corners of the park there's a truly awesome kids' playground.



There's a sandpit, swings, slippery dips, a water play pump and plenty of room to explore. It's easy to see energetic youngsters creating all sorts of adventures here, and the playground is all enclosed so your little explorer can't wander off. There's also a great loop path around the playground where toddlers can burn some trike rubber.



Just next to the playground you'll find a couple of barbecues and picnic tables. If you feel like cooking up a snag or two for a picnic lunch, this is the place to do it. These picnic tables look out over two basketball/netball courts which get plenty of regular use. There's also a bocce court available if you'd like to indulge in a more relaxing sporting activity.



Naremburn Park is also home to two sportsgrounds, usually set up for cricket or soccer depending on the time of the year. All this open grass means you're likely to see more than a few office workers sweating it out in their lunch breaks on weekdays.



These sportsgrounds are also unleashed dog exercise areas, perfect spots to let your dog run free and go racing after a ball or a stick. There's plenty of seating at benches and picnic tables around the fringes of the park, along with ample shade provided by tall trees. There's no shortage of good spots to spread out a picnic blanket and just relax.



The park is also home to some outdoor fitness equipment, making it a popular haunt for fitness fanatics and the occasional boot camp group. Public toilets are available for use, and the park is handily located just 800 metres from St Leonards train station and bus stops. Off-street parking is available on Park Road and Frances Street, while it's also possible to jag an on-street spot,
