Description: Phillippa Oleary Park is a great space for young kids. It has a small equipment set with a slide, fireman's pole and more, as well as swings (including a secure one for little kids).
In addition to the playground, what makes this place particularly good for small kids is that it's away from any roads. While there is access from both Hinemoa Avenue and Arianna Avenue (both back streets in Normanhurst) you have to follow shorts paths to actually get to the open space where the facilities are. For example, from the direction of Arianna Avenue, there's bush and a bridge.
As well as the equipment, there's a lot of open space, but it's not very flat. Some seats are dotted around too.
