This beautiful, well maintained park is ideal for family fun, EXCEPT when invaded from the 'West' in mid summer, when hordes of large extended familes take over!!!. Safe swimming for little kids, but be early to grab a picniv spot.

I lived for over 20 years of my life in front of Nielsen Park and I have memories to always cherish including my son's first walk in the Park and the first time he rode his bicycle .. son I miss you and I love you.

My wife and I love to swim and lay in the sun at Nielson PK. It can get hideous in summer with parking but its worth a visit. Good little cafe there also that do a great pie and coffee.

Favourite beach - and that's a big call given we have an abundance of great beaches here in Sydney. Why so good? Well first up it's a harbour beach (so dont go if surf is what you ar after) that is situated on the edge of a lovely piece of National Park. So it's surrounded by large mature trees. It... More

We have visted this area three times now, once we had a picnic and a swim, the next time we did the coastal walk. It is a lovely spot and the coastal walk takes you past some lovely homes. Great way to spend an hour or two.
