Smaller than it’s sister playground at the Peninsula Recreation Precinct in Umina, the WL Lloyd Park at the northern end of Umina beach is just as picturesque and absolutely brilliant for toddlers and smaller children.

A popular spot for after-school hangs, the soft-fall bark playground is perfectly shaded from the afternoon sun as well as being positioned right next to Umina beach which offers a cooling breeze during the hotter months.

The playground includes a mini-slide for little climbers and a larger slippery dip slide with a climbing frame, rope wall and fireman’s pole for the more adventurous kids.

The toddler friendly see-saw comes with head rests to assist with the wobbles and provides smaller children with a sturdier balance.

There’s also a net swing which boasts its popularity as little ones all clamber aboard and shout “me too!”

This cute little park is right next door to Umina’s Ocean Beach Surf Club – a handy spot to grab a coffee and a morning bite. Plus its proximity to the beach makes this a worthwhile destination for a morning, afternoon or even a whole day of fun with lots to keep kids and parents happy and entertained.
