Balcombe Park is located in front of heritage house The Briars. It's more formal than most parks and targeted at adults as much as children.

A lawn at the back provides open space with seats around the edges and there's a small playground to the right of the entrance (though it's really just swings). A picnic table is located to the left of the entrance, while nearby is a bubbler and a bin.

Balcombe Park was created due to the significance of the house behind it (The Briars was modeled after a house on Saint Helena where Napoleon Bonaparte stayed). It has also been used to restore the aesthetic value of the site and provide another public space to cater for Ku-ring-gai's future increase in residents.
