    The Park

    The playground in Biddigal Reserve is located just north of Bondi Beach. The park is elevated and showcases some of the best views you’ll find to capture the beach or an incredible sunset.

    The playground is small and maximises views, but it is also filled with some cool bespoke play sculptures. The art pieces were created by Lloyd Keleman, and feature a sea dragon, fish, turtle, crocodile and octopus. The pieces look fantastic as a set and also offer a level of play value with different colours and textures for children to interact with. Having the sea dragon and fish appear as though they are emerging from the sand (or water), encourages imaginative themed play. Also placed in the Eastern Suburbs, another unique mosaic piece by Keleman can be found in the district level playground, Bronte Park (also worth checking out!).

    The play space has a range of traditional play equipment in the form of swings, a see-saw and rockers to the north of the playground. There’s also a small nature play space with rocks, mulch and vertical logs that weaves between trees to the sculpture pieces.

    Most of the park is secure, with fencing and garden beds around most of the perimeter of the park. But as always – a level of supervision is required.

    There are shade trees within the park and a few shaded picnic settings. The park gets busy at different times of the year, but if you can grab one, it’s the perfect spot to plan a lunch or morning tea. To help you prepare – there are accessible barbecues provided between the playground and Bondi Beach.

    With a short walk down to Bondi Beach, plenty more facilities become available. But if you don’t want to walk that far, North Bondi Children’s Pool (Wally Weekes Pool) is a popular option for a swim to avoid older crowds.

    Biddigal Reserve is a great playground to check out, and it offers much more than just an Instagram photo opportunity (but it receives top marks for that too!). If you do visit the reserve, the main Bondi Beach Playground is only a short walk away for even more fun!

    Highlights

    The highlight of Biddigal Reserve is obvious – the view overlooking Bondi Beach! It’s arguably the most iconic beach in not only the Eastern Suburbs, but the whole of Australia.

    As well as the views and access to Bondi Beach, we love the bespoke mosaic art pieces that have been integrated with the playground at Biddigal Reserve.
