    The Park

    Within Bonna Point Reserve, Kurnell, you’ll find this incredible adventure playground. The play space is full of social elements, with dual slides running from the sky pods and dual flying fox, among other pieces.

    The park is full of features and facilities including adventure play, junior play, traditional play equipment a mini skate park plaza and public toilets. Without a doubt, the standout of the play space is the sky pods, which can be seen from anywhere in the play space!

    Beginning with the hero of the playground – the adventure play sky pods. It consists of two elevated pods that can be accessed by a ladder or a rope net climbing tower. The pods are connected with rope tunnels, leading to a slide back down to the ground. The tallest slide runs from 4.5m high! A benefit of having two slides is that kids can race from top to bottom and engage in social play.

    The sky pods are brilliant for developing physical and social skills. Additionally, due to the challenge to get to the top, a child’s problem-solving and risk-taking skills are also honed. With all the effort it takes to reach the top, the super slides are a fitting reward for reaching the achievement.

    As for other pieces of play equipment in the park – there’s a cubby for younger kids and toddlers, a social spinner, play panels, a FIVE-BAY swing set and an additional basket swing. All items are placed in synthetic turf or sand and are spread out, allowing kids plenty of room to run in between.

    Using sand as the impact attenuation surface is a play element in itself. It’s another sensory material for kids to discover and interact with.

    Along with the common traditional play pieces, there is also musical play with four musical chimes. Adding inclusive musical play equipment develops physical, emotional, imaginative and cognitive skills, among others.

    Perhaps the park’s most popular piece of play equipment is tucked away in the northern end – the dual flying foxes! In fact, these are almost 30m long! They’ve been designed with the same principle as the sky pods slides by adding an extra cable to double the fun!

    Equally as popular as the flying fox is the skate plaza. It’s fully concrete and made up of different sized box grinds, rails and ramps. Novice skaters shouldn’t be intimidated – it’s suitable for first-timers right through to pros!

    There is not much seating or furniture to watch from in the park, but there is a generous open grass kickabout area to throw down a towel. At the time of visiting, It looks like there are provisions (large posts) to include shade sails over the traditional play equipment in future. In the meantime, you’ll need to fight for the single picnic table under shelter!

    One major win is the inclusion of a toilet block. The park is isolated from a major shopping strip, so this is valuable for comfort if staying the day.

    Finally, there is a dog off-leash area at Silver Beach, to the east of the Bonna Point Reserve car park. Refer to Sutherland Shire’s website for rules and regulations (including specifics around dogs in/around the playground).

    This is without a doubt our favourite adventure playground in Sutherland Shire. If you’re closer to the City and want a similar experience, Wulaba Park Adventure Playground fits the bill!

    Highlights

    The sky pods with net tunnels make this one of the best adventure playgrounds in not only the Sutherland Shire, but the whole of Sydney! Paired with this are the dual slides, with one coming down from 4.5m high!

    The other highlights of the playground are tucked away to the north of the site – the dual flying fox and skate park plaza. The flying foxes are always a popular addition to a park, and the skate park increases the range of users to enjoy the space.
