Lane Cove just entered the race for the best park with the recent re-opening of Mindarie Park, and it’s proving to be a formidable competitor.
The park aligns with the Everyone Can Play in NSW guidelines to cater for all people, including disabled and able-bodied children and their Carers. The guidelines encourage best practice in inclusive play space design and provide opportunities for everyone to come together and play.
But my personal favourite quality is that the only bark chip to be seen at Mindarie Park is a tiny amount around the edge used for landscaping. Otherwise the ground is made from that lovely, far more hygienic, cushy playground surface that saves mums having to worry about what kids have recently digested.
Mindarie Park is located on the corner of Mindarie Street and Kullah Parade, Lane Cove North.

Yes there are toilets and a baby change table available in the public toilets. BYO toilet paper just in case.
Best times to visit Mindarie Park are early mornings and mid week. From about 10.30am after the local school drop off, it starts to get really busy. That being said, even when it’s busy it still manages to feel quite safe. Weekends tend to get a bit crazy.
