Parks & Playgrounds

Children playing in a Willoughby park

Willoughby City Council provides a wide range of playground facilities, ranging from district level facilities through to local neighbourhood ‘pocket’ parks. Playgrounds provide important facilities to the community, particularly for children and their parents and carers. These parks also provide a pleasant environment to relax and enjoy the beauty of the natural surrounds.

In recognition of the importance of playgrounds, Council adopted a Playground Development Plan in 1998, and commenced a program of constructing new and upgrading existing playgrounds. As a result of this program, Council has completed a number of exciting and innovative playgrounds, including Beauchamp Park, Chatswood Park, John Roche Playground, Castle Cove Park, Lowanna Park, Muston Park and the highly regarded Hallstrom Park. These parks provide a number of unique and outstanding play opportunities, and have become very popular with children of all ages.

The facilities vary at each park, so use the list below to determine which park will suit your needs, for example children’s play equipment, toilets or barbeque. This information is also available as a downloadable brochure:  Willoughby City Council Playgrounds Brochure - 2,946 KB. You can also view Council's Parks Plans of Management.

Please note, there a number of prohibited activities in Council parks and playgrounds. If you have questions about safety, maintenance and accessibility, please read our Playground FAQ.

Council takes ecological considerations into account when making decisions about design and planning of parks and reserves. Read more about Sustainable Parks and Reserves.
