Plenty of space for the little ones to run around and enjoy as well
Elkington Park boasts great water views. There is an ample amount of space for the kids of Sydney to run around in. The play equipment is in abundance, with a enclosed fenced area at the main play equipment for safety reasons.
Great harbour views
A great vantage point for the New Years Eve Fireworks, and a swimming pool facility (Dawn Fraser Baths) is located right next door. Great water views of Sydney Harbour are enjoyed.
