    The Park

    Dudley Page Reserve playground is located between Bondi Beach and Watsons Bay, in Dover Heights.

    The play space is small and limited with equipment, but the view of the City is phenomenal. Equipment aimed at younger children in the park is a spring see-saw, slide and swing set. There is a rope web tower to cater to older children.

    The entire play space is covered in rubber wetpour. It has been poured in a geometrical pattern using a bright blue and striking yellow. The bright colours cheer up the play space.

    There is no shade or shelter provided in the playground, so unless there’s perfect weather, the space is incredibly exposed to sun and wind. There is also limited furniture, so an extended stay in the park might present challenges.

    The park includes a generous kickabout space, occupying most of the site. In the middle of this space is a synthetic grass cricket pitch to encourage social games to be had. The open grass area is popular with dog walkers; however dogs must remain on a leash at all times. Refer to Waverley Council’s website for more information.

    Towards the centre of the park is a range of static outdoor fitness equipment. The mix of pieces allows users to stretch, work out and perform beginner calisthenics workouts right through to more advanced sets.

    Finally, bordering the outdoor fitness playground in Dudley Page Reserve, there is a learner bike track. It includes markings to help educate kids about road rules (or you can ignore them and just have fun!). It’s a unique addition that is uncommon for an Eastern Suburbs playground.

    Highlights

    The views from Dudley Page Reserve are truly stunning. On a clear day, you can see the Sydney skyline on a bright blue backdrop. But the most magical times to visit are early morning for sunrise, and in the evening for sunset.
